Why The Copy, Play & Learn
Teaching System Works

Since Mel Bay published his iconic book A Modern Method for Guitar in 1948, guitar methods have used the same pedagogical

principles. They show the student the pitch of several notes, where they are located on the guitar and the duration of several

types of notes. This works fine for older children and adults however young children have difficulty with this approach.

 

Young children learn physical skills naturally through imitation whether they are learning to speak, write or perform a sporting activity and they often learn to read words through the association of a word with an object. This is the same approach the Copy, Play and Learn Guitar method takes in teaching children how to learn to play the guitar and read music.

 

Based on songs designed to engage and appeal to young people, this beginner guitar book develops musicianship, note reading, fine motor skills, and encourages children to recognise and play rhythmic and melodic patterns as they piece together an evolving story based on a boy, his friends and family.

 

By observing and imitating a visually logical pattern of notes as demonstrated by their teacher, a young person can confidently

play the fun and relevant pieces to a vibrant backing track. The child can play the guitar as they develop the ability to process

and interpret pitch and rhythm.
