Beginning guitar is one of the more popular music classes at TCCS. Students who have no guitar experience whatsoever will be given instruction on this amazing and versatile instrument and, by the end of the year, be able to play a variety of music. Students will be introduced to the different types of guitars, their various parts, and their different applications. They will be given a fundamental knowledge of music theory as it relates to the guitar. This will include - but not be limited to - a basic knowledge of chords, chord tabs, power chords, right-hand strumming/picking techniques, the I, IV, V chords in any given key, playing by ear, and playing in an ensemble. This is not primarily a performing group. However, students are given several opportunities to perform during the school year. A great experience!
