About this resource
To help your student develop as a musician, it's important to teach them to think about music from a different instrument's perspective. The easiest way to do this is to teach your student to listen to a vocalist and focus on the way the notes are expressed. Guitar is an incredibly expressive instrument but unless your student learns to think about expressing notes, they often will play with no expression.
This Creative Challenge will teach your student to listen to a vocal melody, work out how to play it on guitar, then learn to emulate the way the vocalist expresses each note on guitar. The change in the way your student will think about music can be dramatic after they practice this skill.
