Learning Objectives  (relevant CBMT domain items)

By the end of the course instruction participants will be able to (***or begin to):

-Perform single note exercises and understand the importance of practicing them as they relate to guitar rhythm/accompaniment development. (III.A.5.a) (III.A.5.f.2)
-Demonstrate arpeggiated style picking to songs in 3/4 and 4/4 time. (III.A.5.c) (III.A.5.d)
-Apply the two concepts presented here for transcribing, then applying those rhythm/ accompaniment possibilities to songs when learning them. (III.A.5.c) (III.A.5.d) (III.A.5.i)
-Implement stylistic rhythm/accompaniment components in the popular song styles discussed here, i.e., jazz, blues, country and patriotic. (III.A.5.c) (III.A.5.d) (III.A.5.i)

*** the reason the language “begin to” is included is because all guitar players are at varying degrees of development and competency. This course covers basic information that all music therapy professionals can play and information that at times, is of a more advanced level. At this time, those with less experience can be exposed to this information then apply the more advanced techniques in the
future as their skills develop.
