After years of using other methods to teach music fundamentals, I wrote my own to address what they lacked: a foundation in theory and technique. It uses songs from our American heritage to carry the student along on the path of musical and technical development. For the absolute beginner, it’s paced so that your reading skills are matched with your technical skill. For others learning to read on the instrument, it’s challenging enough without feeling too elementary. Have a look at the sample pages.
