Learn to play the Guitar like me! part 2part 2

Review from Sam Bonsor Tower Road Academy Boston  

Learn to play the Guitar Part 2 shows progression from the first DVD by introducing new chords and more challenging songs.

The student can play along with the CD when practising duets, or with a partner, giving flexibility if playing alone at home or at school in a group.

The colourful presentation and straight forward instructions help the student to work through the DVD at their own pace and have fun learning new chords and notes at the same time.

A must have for budding guitarists wanting to expand their repertoire.

My review: ‘Learn to play the Guitar like me!’ a teaching resource produced by Interact

“This was easy to use for a beginner like me”

 

  • I liked the colourful slides and the step–by–step guide of the notes
  • The DVD progressed steadily to a final performance
  • The backing tracks were very helpful to play along to and acted as support if I missed out any notes
  • The notation, stave and treble clef are important to teach alongside the practical aspect of learning to play the guitar. This then gives the notation meaning and context (This was clear to understand)
  • The activity cards, notes, values and where to place your fingers on the guitar can be used in conjunction with the DVD to support (these can be printed off)
  • Performance songs can be printed off, this would be a great help to the teacher

Summary

I would recommend this DVD for use in Primary Schools also for Year 7 in Secondary Schools. Looking forward to part B!

 

How I would implement this resource module into a school or club

  • Introduce to a small group at first e.g. 10 pupils
  • Increase the number of pupils as the first group progresses and use them to teach the others
  • You should then have a whole class playing (if you wish)
  • A non specialist teacher or parent could lead this guitar group
