    This course introduces students to elementary guitar technique and musicianship. Students will develop a repertoire of songs and pieces in various styles and obtain a method to further their development on the instrument independently. This course will prepare the student to play the guitar in all situations where simple music making is required. Students will be requested to practice specific music repertoire outside of regular tutorial times to successfully complete the course. A body of work will be created throughout the course for students to use in the primary school environment or any vocation that may benefit. No prior musical knowledge is required.
