With the popularity of guitar programming in Canadian schools, this session is designed to show music educators (guitar players and non-players alike) how to start intermediate guitar students on the classical guitar. This hands-on session will use the piece “Estudio” as a teaching tool to discuss right hand fingerpicking, reading notation and musicality. Attendees will leave with resource links for pdfs, audio tracks and teaching tools to get this lesson going in their music classrooms. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own guitars. Ten guitars will be available at the session for use. Please check out our website www.gslakieguitar.com
