Tuning Guide

Tuning is the very first step to learning guitar and our Tuning Guide will help you get in tune quickly and accurately.  It also provides advice on selecting types of tuners that work great and are simple to use.

First Lesson Guide

The First Lesson Guide is the starting point for TYKG and introduces you and your student to guitar tablature notation as well as other important guitar fundamentals. It’s easy to follow and requires no previous musical experience, guiding you as you deliver the first lesson and teach the very first song.

Lesson Planning Booklet

Our Lesson Planning Booklet will show you exactly how to deliver guitar lessons that are enjoyable for both you and your student. After just a few weeks, you’ll establish an effective approach for teaching your student – not only for the first few lessons – but also throughout your entire journey with TYKG.

TYKG Teacher’s Handbook

The TYKG Teacher’s Handbook is our comprehensive teaching tool that will give you step-by-step guidance.  It’s designed to be understood and used gradually, and in a way that parallels your child’s own musical development

Singing Activities Manual (Optional)

We’ve included TYKG Singing Activities – so you can teach your child how to sing, even if you are not a confident singer.  Of course, our Singing Activities are optional, but they may well bring a whole new level of musical enjoyment to your child.
