Worship Guitar Class DVD Review
Our family loves to sing, and each one of the children is learning (some with better success than others!) to play a musical instrument. J is learning guitar. One of the problems, though, is finding a way for him to learn without having to learn all the worldly music, etc. So, for any of you in the same situation...here's a solution-Worship Guitar Class.com! I was sent the Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class Volume 1 dvd for review. J watched it, and he was thrilled with the clear, easy-to-follow instructional method of the program. The dvd is a great way for J to learn guitar, and hopefully he will be playing along with our singing in just a few months! Here is a sample excerpt from the first volume.
Here are some questions that Jean Welles gets asked frequently:
"What age do you recommend for the videos? Is nine too young? No, nine 1/2 years old and higher are great for the videos. I don't recommend them for younger than nine. I've taught kids from age five, but the video is geared for an older audience. Younger kids, ages 4 1/2 - 9, can play the songs, but I would start them slower, with one finger chords, for example. (See program for little kids at kidsguitarlessons.com) On the upper end, there is no age limit. I've taught students in their 80's. I'd teach them older too. One of my 'Grandma' students told me her mother learned to swim at age 90. It's wonderful to always grow and learn! Can you use the videos to teach classes?
Absolutely! There are several churches in the US and Canada that are using the videos to teach. If you want to do that, let me know and I'll send you a sheet on how to use them in a class setting."
"Dear Christian Friend, What an AWESOME God we have! He is so worthy of our praise. It's been a joy for me to teach others to play the guitar for most of my life. In 2001 I made the first Worship Guitar Class video with you in mind. The Worship Guitar Class lessons were birthed in prayer and for the purpose of helping people just like you draw closer to Him through learning and developing the skill of playing worship guitar. The Worship Guitar Class lessons are in DVD format in both English and Spanish. It was suggested to Trademark the name, which could only be done with my own being added. Today 'Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™' is a tool for Christian churches and worshippers in over 50 countries. I've had the wonderful opportunities to study with world-class guitarists. You can have lessons from a worshipper who can explain how to play with excellent technique too."
I recommend Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class to anyone looking for a great way to learn guitar!
