At the basis of the method
is the concept that music must be easy, effortless, like reading a book. However, playing
demands the development of many skills at once. Since we are not used to this, we might
play incorrectly if we do not receive the right guidance.
The idea that you must study the guitar with a teacher
is true. It is always best to study with a teacher, however, it is not always possible.
Sometimes we want to try and experience something before fully committing ourselves,
especially when we dont really know if it suits us.
Play Guitar is not meant to replace a
guitar teacher. Quite the contrary! With all due modesty I suggest that guitar teachers
embrace this program and use it with their students. No other workbook enables you to hear
the pieces and exercises instantly as this one does. Near every line of notes there is a
button which you can press in order to hear the exercise or piece. You can e-mail us for
help from every lesson page.
It is important to note that the program was written in
English since it is used as a guitar teaching program in the Internet, in which, as you
well know, the formal language is English. However we have the method Play
Guitar in workbooks written in Hebrew, as Tele-Yeda Company (learning at home)
uses this method with its students. It is therefore possible to study the guitar with this
workbook through Tele-Yeda as well, and if you are teachers, or workers of the ministry of
education you can even earn credits from the ministry of education by taking this course.
