students practicing with their guitars

Learning to Play the Guitar

Ms. Guerrero’s fifth-grade class at the School of Dual Language had their first guitar lesson on Monday. Music teacher Ms. Schaefges taught them how to remember the standard tuning of the guitar (EADGBE) by teaching them the phrase: Every Amateur Does Get Better Eventually. She taught them how to strum and play chords. The students had fun as they familiarized themselves with a new instrument.
