Increasingly, guitar study is offered alongside band, orchestra, and chorus in school music programs. This development has drawn a new population of students into those programs but has left music educators scrambling to developing meaningful, sequential courses of study that both meet the needs of these new students and align with state, county, and national curricula. Few available guitar methods are designed with the classroom in mind, and fewer still take a holistic approach to teaching and learning the instrument. In short, teachers are left to navigate a vast array of method books that cover a variety of styles and approaches, often without the confidence and experience necessary to know 'what to teach when.' The Guitar Workbook: A Fresh Approach to Exploration and Mastery addresses the needs of these educators. Throughout the book's 20 lessons, students are encouraged to explore the ways various guitar styles and notation systems differ, as well as the ways they support and complement each other. Lessons cover myriad topics including pick-style playing, basic open position chords, finger-style technique, and power chords. Suggested 'Mastery Activities' at the end of each lesson support higher-order thinking, contextualize the skills and concepts studied, and provide a jumping off point for further exploration. Additionally, suggestions for further study point teachers and students to resources for extra practice.

The BGIS Lesson Book features a step by step explanation of the most essential melodic, harmonic, & rhythmic elements that make up the bebop idiom, coupled with 27 jazz etudes demonstrating their application in order of gradual difficulty. ABOUT THE SERIES: Developed over a 10 year period by its author and used as an instructional method in various music schools, The Bebop Guitar Improv Series consists of two volumes with downloadable multi-media materials. It is intended as a guide to lead both the player with little or no formal improvisation skills, as well as the player who does so exclusively by ear, on the journey to becoming a seasoned jazz improviser. Each volume is comprised of 3 books: the Lesson Book, Workbook, and Scale & Arpeggio Fingerings guide. Volume 1 is devoted to using the blues tonality as the primary vehicle to teach the rudimentary principles of jazz improvisation in theory and practice. Structured with the novice improviser in mind, it initially focuses on learning how to systematically develop a vocabulary to improvise over chord changes from a guitar-oriented technical perspective. Four varieties of 12 bar blues are covered in order of difficulty: 1. Traditional Blues (I-IV-V), 2. Jazz Blues (with II-V cadences), 3. Minor Blues 4. Bird Blues (Charlie Parker style). Each new progression is taught throughout a series of etudes, and gradually introduces one or more of the chord/scales required to improvise over most jazz standards.Various melodic concepts and syncopated rhythms commonly used in the swing/bebop idioms, are taught as well. Volume 2 builds on the principles explored in Volume 1 and explores various applications over "Rhythm Changes," as well as major, minor and extended tonalities. The technical focus is on multi-positional playing using the entire fretboard. For more info please visit http: //bebopguitar.richiezellon.com
