Hi All, I've spent some time teaching kids and volunteering to teach group classes at the YMCA, but in most cases the kids are at least 10. I'm having a struggle with an 8 year girl, "that wants to be like Taylor" Anyway, I've meet with her for about 8 20-30 min lessons. She understands, and can identify the notes b,c,d,e,f,g on the b & e strings. She can also identify them on the staff, and understands the duration of a quarter, half, and whole notes. Here's where the problem comes in, even trying to have her sight read, say two to four measures, she really struggles. I thought I'd take a break from this and move into a G & Em chord with quarter note downward strumming. She also struggles with this also. This is the second time I've worked with a younger girl, and both have been unsuccessful. One quit, and I think this girl is about to also. Any suggestions or app/games you might suggest to develop her interest and build these basic skills? I've also talked to the mom about practice time. Currently, she just goes to her room to practice for 15 min a couple times a day. I suggested she practice in a room with mom or dad. I also thought of recording a short video of the exercises being played correctly, so she would have some reference of what the goal should sound like. Ideas?
