NECESSARY GUITAR VOLUME 1

About Necessary Guitar, by author, Tim Sublette...

 I have been teaching guitar for well over 35 years, had the privilege to teach hundreds of students and have written mountains of music studies and exercises for students. This book represents the basic framework that I have found works best for beginning students ages 12 thru adult. The material is presented in the exact order I teach.  This is not a book to teach you to read music, but the purpose of this book is to give you the necessary knowledge to begin your guitar journey.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT WILL I LEARN IN GUITAR LESSONS?

First you must know that not every Guitar Lesson is taught the same. Different students have different needs and lessons are tailored to the individual. Younger students (6-12 yrs) are taught to read music along with proper technique and a proven custom method to ease them into playing chords. Older students and adults may choose to learn by tablature. Rhythm skills, Theory, and improvisation are also incorporated.

WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC CAN I LEARN?

For the beginning student the basics of guitar are the same regardless of  genre. For the more advanced student we cover:  Jazz Guitar, Blues Guitar, Rock Guitar, Country & Bluegrass Guitar. We teach electric, acoustic, finger and pick styles.

HOW LONG UNTIL YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY A SONG?

In most cases short songs or pieces of songs are taught almost from the beginning. However how soon it becomes music depends many factors including the amount of time spent practicing.

CAN WE USE GRANDPA'S OLD GUITAR?

It depends. For a young student a scaled down guitar (usually 3/4, see: Instruments) is needed. The action or ease of play is very important, some guitars can be setup (see Repairs) to play well at a moderate expense and some cannot without major repair. A guitar does not need to be expensive but it does need to be the right size and play well.

DO WE NEED AN ELECTRIC OR ACOUSTIC GUITAR?

For the beginner, either will work. At some point one or the other works better for certain styles. Many end up playing both.

HOW DO WE PAY?

A $25.00 registration (non-refundable) fee must paid before a lesson time is scheduled. Lessons are paid in advance on the first lesson of the month($100/4wks, $125.00/5wks). We run rolling admissions so if you want start in the middle of the month, it is prorated @ $25.00 per lesson. We except cash, paypal or check only.

STUDENT TEACHER PROGRAM 
 
We support a program to help beginning teachers refine their skills as they develop into professional teachers. Only advanced long term students who are music majors or preparing to study music at a college level are screened for this program. Not only are their music skills considered but their goals and their abilities to communicate with others, especially younger student musicians. They hone their skills under the watchful eye of a mentor instructor and have access to address any teaching concerns they may encounter. Through this program we will advance the art of teaching music while allowing student teachers opportunity to earn financial support in their chosen field.
