Next term starts January 13, 2020

Private Guitar Lesson Level 8 continues the application of the harmonic minor scale and its chordal possibilities in all keys. You will also revisit the major and minor pentatonic scales and apply them to all keys. You will demonstrate close and spread voicings by way of voice-led triads across the fretboard. In addition, you will dive deeper into diminished triad arpeggios by demonstrating them in three octaves from any chord tone and in all keys. Four-part chord forms and arpeggios will also be explored in all keys across the fretboard, knowledge which will be applied to a final musical piece under the guidance of the instructor.
