This is a popular and creative method for teaching guitar to young children. From the beginning it integrates chord playing with note reading. The student starts with easy one finger chord forms and strums accompaniments to numerous songs. Note reading is then methodically and carefully introduced. Two subsequent volumes complete this course. The method features Ron Wheeler's colorful cartoon artwork. This package includes the companion instructional DVD.
