• Guitar 7/8 2022-2023 Important Information 
    Guitar 7 and Guitar 8 class is a music performing class which will have two concerts during the school year.  Students and parents/guardians need to know the following information: 
    1.  Students will have nylon string classical guitars to use at school during class.
    2.  Each student will need to have a home guitar to use to practice their music.   If you need a guitar for home use, please tell Mrs. DeRosa the first day you have class.  A  footstool and music stand is also needed for home practice. 
    3.  Each student will need to provide a black 1 inch binder, with dividers, which is listed on the School Supply list.  Please bring this binder to each class.  It will be used for classwork, home practice and concerts.  We need black as that color is traditional for concert use. 
    4.  Each student will need to learn how to read traditional music notation.  Worksheets and exercises will be available during class. 
    5.  Students will be given assignments to do at home and are expected to practice their guitars several times per week.  Improvement and enjoyment will not happen without practice. 
    6.  Students will perform in groups during class and will also make videos of their songs for playing test grades.  Students will record the videos on their school-supplied laptop devices.
    7.  Students will learn some music theory and some music history as well during this class.
    I look forward to teaching our 7th grade and 8th grade students all about the guitar, music theory and music history.
