Guitar for Kids: Rock Dojo The Complete Belt System is NOT your granddaddy’s guitar method book!
In fact, The Complete Belt System is probably not for you if:
- You think Old Susanna rocks harder than a runaway Crazy Train!
- You believe modern music predates the Civil War!
- Your idea of hard rock is a roomful of kids playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on nylon string guitars.
If, on the other hand, you want to teach kids to rock—I mean really, truly capture the rage and fury of rock guitar—in large group guitar classes, then read on!
A Complete Solution for Guitar Teachers
First and foremost, The Complete Belt System is a series of solutions for guitar teachers. It’s designed to help you save time, earn more money, and reach more students in large group guitar classes.
Based on an Award-Winning Guitar Program
Furthermore, the musical concepts, exercises, and studies were developed over a three-year period and tested on hundreds of kids in our award-winning after-school group guitar classes in Portland, OR.
In other words, if our students didn’t love “it,” then “it” ain’t in the book! For that reason, you can be confident your guitar students will love the material too!
Motivational and Inspiring
If you think you’re in the guitar teaching business, you’re wrong! As a music educator, you’re in the business of motivating and inspiring kids to fall in love with the guitar and develop a consistent home practice routine.
Reward Guitar Students for their Hard Work
Of course, this is easier said than done. Fortunately, The Complete Belt System is designed to motivate students to take ownership over their musical educations by rewarding them for their hard work and effort. Students begin at the white belt level progressing through five stages represented by colored guitar straps!
