About Guitar Expressions Music Curriculum
Guitar Expressions is the only complete class guitar curriculum designed tomeet the needs of the contemporary class guitar instructor - the first class guitar method to incorporate fully all the needs of a well-rounded music curriculum. Guitar Expressions incorporates multiple learning styles - combing music literacy-based learning with creative rote and aural learning. These two approaches build on and reinforce each other, allowing students and teachers to nurture indivdual strengths. Students simulateously use melodic and harmonic approaches to the guitar while learning to read music, understand music theory improvise, and perform song accompaniments. Throughout the book, students perform solos, duets, and ensembles using a progressive approach in which songs are introduced and then built upon in succeeding units.
