This class will take the younger students from basic sight reading and notes to playing a song. Starting on the 1st string on week one, string 2 on week two....continuing this pattern until week six on the 6th string. Next we will learn chords and progressions leading up to full songs.

* Special Help with Reading
Teacher: Tiffani Scott
This class is for the kiddo who is struggling with reading. We will use different methods as well as reading from different kinds of things. We go over mechanics as well as trying to pinpoint what the struggle is.
This class is adaptive, meaning I will adjust as we go, and I learn their learning style and levels. There is no curriculum to purchase but I do ask for a $20 supply fee.
This class will work well for kiddos on the spectrum, who maybe do not write well or do well in structured settings. I do not allow ANY sort of bullying and go over this from day one. In my classes I talk about how we all learn in different levels and ways.
