Alfred, MMP Donate Guitar Wheels to GAMA Teaching Gutiar Workshops

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Wednesday, July 25, 2012
Alfred Music Publishing, the world’s largest educational print publisher since 1922, and Music Master Publishing, creators of the Guitar Wheel music theory educational tool, donated 280 Guitar WheelsTM to teachers being trained at GAMA to support the 2012 Teaching Guitar Workshops across the USA and Canada. The Guitar Wheel is a two-sided hands-on educational music theory tool trusted by teachers worldwide and incorporated into guitar and piano instruction.

Glen McCarthy, teacher at the Colorado Springs workshop said, “The Guitar Wheel is an excellent product that helps guitar students understand music theory. It is a great addition for the teachers that attend our workshops." Music Master Publishing looks forward to more ways to support GAMA in the future.

Through the Teaching Guitar Workshops, GAMA helps educators to start or enhance their guitar music programs. GAMA workshops “help bring guitar instruction to hundreds of thousands of children,” says Rob Sulkow, director of GAMA.

Alfred also donated a wide variety of educational material to the workshops from the Jerry Snyder’s Guitar School series and from the 21st Century Guitar Ensemble methods and supplements collection, along with Alfred’s most recent release, Sound Innovations for Guitar, Book 1.

Guitar Wheel is available for $14.99 at music retailers and at alfred.com.
