...if you've never picked up a guitar before, StrumSchool is the right site for you!
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2012
StrumSchool.com, a free online service that uses a curriculum of instructional videos, downloadable documents and a dash of personal attention to teach aspiring musicians to play the guitar, is happy to announce its beta launch.
The creation of StrumSchool’s online guitar service is the product of longtime amateur guitar player and site founder Benjamin Shapiro. Shapiro credits a fruitless search for a free resource dedicated to teaching guitar though online video as his inspiration for creating the site. After scouring the Internet and finding nothing but outdated, unorganized and expensive subscription sites, Benjamin decided to create a free and high-quality video-based site focused on teaching beginners how to play the guitar.
“StrumSchool’s focus is to teach the fundamentals of playing the guitar for free. We use a straightforward and easy-to-follow curriculum of video lessons that teach beginners everything that they’ll need to know to learn how to play any genre of music. Our lessons are taught by full-time professional teachers and since they are free, you simply won't find a more affordable or easier way to start learning how to play the guitar,” says Shapiro.
StrumSchool’s lessons start from the absolute beginning and are broken down into bite-sized chunks. This means that no matter who they are or how much they do or don’t already know, guitar students can learn to play on their own schedule at their own pace. Shapiro adds, “Our site is focused on teaching beginners what they need to know to get started. We break everything down into easily consumable pieces so that our students can work though them as quickly or slowly as they want. Our first few videos explain what all players needs to know about the instrument's anatomy and the differences between the various types of guitars. That means, if you’ve never picked up a guitar before, StrumSchool is the right site for you.”
In addition to instructional videos, StrumSchool provides its users with printable lesson plans, a place to find guitar inspiration, an online dictionary of guitar vocabulary terms and a resource to get answers to all their guitar questions. Furthermore, StrumSchool’s services can be accessed on computers, tablets and mobile devices. “StrumSchool was designed so that all you need is a web-enabled device and an Internet connection to get started. We want this site to be the tool that helps students become amazing guitar players no matter where they are or how much they know,” stated Shapiro.
