Feedback form is now closed.
This session is a clinic based on beginner guitar pedagogy designed to show music educators (guitar players and non-players alike) how to start their novice students correctly.
For this, we will examine the www.gslakieguitar.com program. Resources will be given and
demonstrated enabling music teachers to run 10-13 weeks of daily classes. Topics will include
