Introduction to Guitar 2
|Course code MUSI2014||Units 10||Level 2000||Faculty of Education and ArtsSchool of Creative Arts|
This course is the second of two guitar courses (the other being MUSI2001) that introduce students to elementary guitar technique and musicianship. Students will need to have completed MUSI2001 or demonstrate that they have the equivalent level of skill. Students will continue to develop a repertoire of songs and pieces in various styles to independently further their development on the instrument. This course will expand their knowledge of chords, strumming patterns and techniques. Students will be introduced to improvisation techniques and continue to develop their skills so as to be adaptable to different contexts including the primary classroom. Students will be requested to practice specific music repertoire outside of regular tutorial times to successfully complete the course.
