Course Content

The acoustic guitar techniques you will cover are:

  • Fingerpicking
  • Playing lead guitar
  • Advanced chords (Suspended & 7th Chords)
  • Barre Chords
  • Improving speed and fluidity
  • Group Performance

Basic chords and strumming will not be covered on this course.

The curriculum is class led, the tutor will take requests of songs and techniques at the beginning of the term and implement these into the course content.

Assessment Method

This course uses RARPA as its method of assessment.

RARPA stands for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement which is the process of assessment for non-accredited learning. It is a means of validating the outcomes of programmes which do not result in qualifications. RARPA is a five-stage process which measures and records learners’ progress, achievements and attendance.

Where can it lead?

We hope that this course will help you develop your skills and confidence to start playing the guitar in public, be it at local jam nights, playing in a band or even recording your own songs. Perhaps you will want to advance your skills and music through further study or become a self-employed musician.
