Here I want to outline a few basic types of music teaching tools and media.
In this world of technology it’s easy to cover only the high-tech side of things, but we have to remember that sometimes hard copy (books) are great for the beginner. They don’t need to worry about interface issues, network connections or dropping the iPad in a puddle. Some industry-standard method books through the years include:
- Mel Bay Guitar Method
- Berklee School of Music
But of course there ARE some wonderful tools in technology coming out every few months, and some of the best I have found are:
- eMedia Guitar Method (including Intermediate Guitar Method)
