Elementary Guitar – Connie Hale

Elementary Guitar provides immediate success for adults and children who want to play guitar. The book starts with proper playing technique, and then quickly allows the student to play “real songs.”

The unique teaching sequence starts with the simplest chord, E minor. After finding the two-finger E minor position and mastering a simple strum, the student can accompany six songs. Song variety gives interest to practicing a “just learned” chord or chord changes.

Elementary Guitar is also perfect for use a guitar lab with elementary-aged children. Many of the songs can be taught in earlier grades. When songs are old favorites, students are motivated to learn the accompaniment.

Elementary Guitar fits nicely with your Orff program too!  The games, songs, and activities are designed to fit right in with classic Orff style accompaniments. Add a guitar or two to your classroom collection of Orff instruments!  Let your Orff process include the guitar.
