Everyone taking guitar lessons at MEOW Academy will learn traditional note reading.  Teenagers  will learn a combination of note-reading, chord chart reading, and guitar tablature.  Learning chords is a difficult place to begin lessons because most children will find the fingers aren’t ready to just jump into chords.  Learning note reading is a great way to get the fingers to develop strength and coordination, however there are other ways of learning note reading like guitar tablature.  This is why we teach a combination of methods because what works for one child, will not always work for another.
