Course Details

Students taking this course will receive 1-on-1 instruction from Carlos Caminos for 60 minutes each week for 36 weeks. Each student will receive unique, individualized instruction based upon their specific music learning needs.  Students will learn to play rhythms using a pick or even fingerpicking.  Students will learn simple scales to move up and down the fretboard: playing with patterns on the guitar.  Carlos will assess each student's current level and help them learn to play their favorite songs.

Students will learn the first chords i.e. putting the notes together, playing Arpeggios - right-hand technique, learn to improvise with scales: the game of speaking with musical notes.  Carlos will also help students compare different types of music - Classical Music, Blues, Folk, Jazz.  By end on this course, Carlos will help students make their own song: by helping them combine the different chord structures and scales.
