Beginner Guitar for Singers Camp
Students in this camp will learn the basics of beginning guitar, focusing on chords and rhythm, with kid-specific approaches to chords so they can be successful even with smaller hands. Campers will learn beginning transposing, and how to use a capo.
Kids will be playing songs by the end of the first camp day.
This camp will provide an easy way of getting around the guitar so when you want to practice your vocals and need some organic backup you'll be ready to go, and a stepping stone to learning more guitar in the future!
Materials needed: an acoustic or electric guitar in tune, a capo, and a pen and notebook to take notes. All other materials will be provided.
This camp starts July 13 and will meet thrice a week on the following schedule:
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, at 3 pm EDT | 12 pm PDT | 19:00 UTC
July 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, and 24
Each camp day campers will meet for two 45-minute sessions with their counselors and fellow campers with a 10-minute break between parts. Campers can also attend other activities on Lessonface that will be just for campers, including a talent show!
