Glen McCarthyDemonstrating the Guitar for Beginning Teachers

In band/orchestra classes, students rarely ask for the teacher to demonstrate the instrument. In guitar, it is expected. Assuming we are beginner classroom (guitar) teachers, how can we deflect this question? Is it okay to use youtube videos? What other options are there?

Here are a few ideas.

1. Youtube is acceptable; screen it for content, proper techniques etc.
2. Use the expertise of another student in the class who may relish the idea of showing the others what they can do.
3. Use videos and other recordings
