Guitars Teach Through Sight, Sound, and Touch

The guitar is a portable instrument that can be sized down for students to play successfully in an elementary setting. With this in mind, McKinley Elementary music teacher, Susan Merriman, was awarded a $1,640.00 EFW grant to purchase guitars. Playing the guitar gives students a hands-on opportunity to learn music in a group situation. It reinforces learning in three ways: sight, seeing the strings and music; sound, hearing the guitar and their voices; and touch, feeling their fingers move along and across the strings of the instrument. The guitars will fulfill an important component of elementary music education by exposing students to yet another instrument that they may not otherwise have an opportunity to play.
