Our group guitar class is designed to provide students with quality learning, complete with group learning activities, ensemble rehearsals, and the latest in guitar MIDI technology - the Jamstik. Students will be engaged in learning!
The class structure includes 4 components:
✔︎ Study Hall
✔︎ Game Time!
✔︎ The Jamstik
20-25 minutes is allotted each class for Study Hall, a private time where students work individually on progressing through the guitar curriculum.
After completing all 3 levels of the guitar curriculum, students will have mastered the fundamentals of rhythm, note-reading, strumming, and basic fingerstyle skills, and are ready to pursue further learning in a style of their choosing.
Our group guitar class builds and reinforces students’ musical foundation through fun group activities. Whether it be playing basic rhythm games or practicing improvisation, we make sure that the students are constantly developing their skills both individually and with their group mates.
Playing with others in an ensemble helps students to develop their listening and teamwork skills! During rehearsals, students come together and create the rich, layered music unique to ensemble playing. Ensemble will include popular arrangements of songs separated into 4 parts. Students will be assigned different parts based on their experience level and skill on guitar.
This enriching opportunity is usually limited to band, choir, and orchestra students, but we are proud to now offer it to our young guitarists at SoKnow Studio as well!
The Jamstik is an app-based MIDI device that allows the student to play the instrument device and receive instant feedback on any iOS device. Students listen to the feedback through speakers or headphones, as the Jamstik itself doesn’t produce any sound. This makes it an excellent tool for quiet focused practice!
