Guitar Skills for Music Therapists and Music Educators
By Peter Meyer, Jessica De Villers, and Erin Ebnet
Spiral bound book and DVD
144 pages

This book and DVD are the ideal text to be used in functional guitar courses for music therapy and music education majors as well as anyone interested in learning the basics of guitar playing quickly. The text is designed to assist the student in developing their functional guitar skills in a fun and easy to follow format and can be used in both the classroom and for individual self study. The text and accompanying exercises begin with the very basics of guitar playing and expands into more challenging material as the reader progresses through the chapters. Topics covered include basic and advanced strumming patterns, fingerpicking, flatpicking, barre and power chords as well as authentic stylistic accompaniment in styles such as the Blues, Jazz, Rock and R & B. In addition to functional guitar skills, music therapy/improvisational applications are also discussed and demonstrated through modifications including alternate tunings and the use of slide guitar.

I am a music educator. I was a piano major and wanted to add guitar to my abilities. I contacted Schmitt Music for guitar lessons. After reviewing the education background of many guitar instructors I choose Peter Meyer and signed up for lessons with Peter.
