Santa Clarita Elementary Blog for Parents

Dear Parents,

Welcome to your Weekly Report Blog!

Here you will learn about all that we have covered with your wonderful children during the week. This blog is updated weekly. Please check periodically for the updates.

Please note: NO REFUNDS are issued after the program has started and no make ups or pro-rate are offered if a child misses a class.

OCTOBER 11, 2017 -- Our first guitar class was a lot of fun! We started by playing a name game to get to know one another better. Then we took out our brand new guitars, tuned the higher strings and got started playing!

The main things we learned yesterday were how to hold the guitar, how to strum, and what frets were and how to use them to play different notes on the higher E string. We practiced “downstrokes” and an “upstrokes” in rhythm. By the end of this lesson, we began work on the song “Olympic Gold” on page 13. Next lesson it is our goal to be able to play Olympic Gold even better, and move on to learn a few more notes on the E string!

 

Please note:

We do offer private, one-on-one music lessons in the comfort of your home. So, we suggest to continue your children’s training with one of our outstanding instructors so they don’t have a long gap between lessons, and therefore hinder their progress.

Thank you very much.
