Guitar Practice Pieces
Engaging students in a music curriculum is hugely dependent on how relevant it is to them
Do you remember your own music classes? What songs do you remember learning? Why?
Students learn better if they see their own musical preferences reflected in the curriculum.
The Adapting Guitarist curriculum incorporates musical selections from a broad range of genres, eras, and artists by utilizing guitar "riffs" as regular practice material. This is also as a way to optimize interest, autonomy, and motivation in students.
