Inspire Academy emphasizes reading and playing music by sight which builds a solid foundation for learning and growing as a musician. We artfully select a blend of music for students to practice that perfects skills and develops the ability to play popular styles. Throughout this curriculum, our teachers try to draw out the artist and entertainer in each student.
Guitar instruction is tailored to the abilities and commitment of each individual. It begins with the basic concepts of melody, harmony, and rhythm. With this foundational approach, the student learns chords and simple chord progressions, moving from rote knowledge to learning songs of increasing complexity. Students build a foundation of sound music theory by learning to read notes and use proper fingering techniques. Once students master written material, they learn to play by ear.
Twice a year, Inspire's students have the opportunity to perform the music they have studied and mastered.
