Product Details


Alfred's Kid's Guitar Course is a fun method that teaches kids how to play songs on the guitar right away. Book 2 starts where Book 1 leaves off by teaching new concepts including notes on the fourth, fifth, and sixth strings, new chords, tempo signs, dynamics, and much more. Each lesson on every colorful page is explained in plain language that's easy to understand, and accompanying audio that can be streamed or downloaded online is included so students can hear what each example should sound like. Plus, they'll learn from three irresistible guitar experts---a clever, classical dog, one cool jazz cat, and a friendly alligator who loves the blues. They draw attention to what's important on each page and make learning music fun! Parents can be effective guides through this course, even if they've never had any musical training themselves.

The companion DVD demonstrates the fundamentals of guitar playing, including how to hold and tune the guitar, strum chords, read music, and play lots of fun songs! The video also features on screen music notation for an easy introduction to reading music, live performances that demonstrate how the music should sound, and bonus MP3 audio tracks of all the music examples for listening and playing along! Also included is easy-to-use computer software that lets students watch the music on screen as it plays. You can speed the music up or slow it down---it's up to you! Online access to the video, MP3s, and software is included free with the DVD.
