Setting Goals

Students work directly with the instructor to set up their musical goals:

♦ What songs do they want to learn?

♦ Do they want to play in front of friends, family, or an audience of thousands?

♦ Teachers work to customize their lesson plan around the student's goals, plotting the course to success. As the goals are achieved the student or teacher can check them off.



Tracking Progress

♦ The student tracks their progress towards these goals by logging their practice times.

♦ Students can see summaries of their weekly practice times, and the teacher can use these to encourage them further.

♦ Parents are welcomed and encouraged to see children's practice times and progress as well.

After each lesson the instructor fills out an entry in the student's journal. This covers:

  • what was covered that week,
  • what the student did great at,
  • what the student needs to improve on,
  • what to practice for next time.

Rewarding Accomplishments

♦ Students receive music learning awards when they hit certain milestones: certificates, hats, t-shirts, and more.

♦ Dedicated students also have the opportunity to participate in local shows.

♦ These are celebrations of what our students have learned, and they love spending a few minutes in the spotlight in front of fellow Red Guitar students and parents.
