Case Study 1
Neil learnt a few chords a while ago but never managed to do much more. He decided that the time was right, and came to Fretroom for help. Neil found that he was able to pick it up quicker than he thought he would. The main concept was learning chord shapes, practising chord changes and creating rhythm patterns. We focused on being creative, making new rhythms, and applying the ideas that came naturally.
Case Study 2
This was an interesting one for me. Mark is highly skilled at boxing, so we used that knowledge to approach the guitar. We treated the musical rhythms like combinations, the notes like upper cuts, hooks, jabs. Worked out pretty well. With a set of notes (punches), how are you going to apply them as licks (combinations)? Which note is the killer blow? Pretty cool.
Case Study 3
Joanne was brand new to the guitar. The first bundle of 5 lessons focused on understanding core concepts: knowing how to find notes on the guitar, understanding where they would be in music notation, and learning a set piece. As a result she was able to play the Happy Birthday melody at her brother's birthday party. Her fist gig! Of course, this will help enormously with her music studies at school.
