Overview

For many generations running, no other instrument has captured the imagination of music lovers and musicians as the guitar. This versatile instrument is capable of producing a stunning range of tones, from the most delicate to the most resounding. Its versatility and adaptability is unsurpassed. It also happens to be an easy instrument to get started on. Shankar Mahadevan Academy's instructor-led courses for the Western Guitar will help students get started on the instrument and provide them with in-class and offline exercises to rapidly improve their proficiency as accompanist as well as soloist. The first course (Introduction to Guitar) will cover the basics of construction, playing chords and melodies, and reading tabulature sheets. Subsequent courses will build upon these basics and build a vocabulary of chords, licks and genre-specific playing styles.
