Students also will learn methods of tuning their instrument, how to read standard notation and tablature on the guitar, and playing songs from “charts” and sheet music. Additionally, students will be introduced to the history of the guitar. Out‐of‐class practice time is required each week in order to acquire the necessary playing skills. Fall, Spring
