BGS Fast-Track System™
The Brandon Guitar Studio Fast-Track System™, designed and structured by David Brandon, motivates students to achieve maximum results from their guitar lessons. Built on a solid foundation of guitar essentials, the core program promotes learning the guitar by the most enjoyable means possible.
- Exciting pieces of music in a variety of styles
While students choose their primary styles of music, we introduce new techniques and inspiration from a host of musical genres. Students play songs and great pieces of music by their favorite artists and are even encouraged to create music of their own.
- Strategic exercises
At times it is necessary to reinforce a concept or overcome a technical difficulty by practicing a specific exercise. These are brief, concentrated studies designed to get quick results.
- Goal-oriented practice
Practicing with concrete goals in mind is one of the keys to musical success. By focusing on specific elements of guitar playing, the student will achieve mastery of each topic as it occurs. Paralleling this approach, the student should still just have fun with the guitar – playing, jamming, and improvising.
- Technique and musicianship
We stress solid principles of technique which involve hand positions, picking techniques, and economy of motion. A strong knowledge of basic fundamentals promotes true musical expression.
- Practical music theory and improvisation
Understanding the reasons behind musical structure ties all the ideas together. It helps students to learn more quickly and even allows for individual creativity. We use a hands-on approach to music theory – directly applying concepts to the instrument. Students are quickly able to recognize scales, chords, and keys and can immediately use their knowledge for satisfying results.
The BGS Fast-Track System™ is a new enhancement to the successful teaching approach used by David Brandon for over thirty years. Brandon Guitar Studio continues to raise the bar for innovative and professional guitar instruction.
