Bob Denney and Laura Lee Matthie developed the Pedagogical Pyramid for Guitar to help teachers build a firm foundation for classroom guitar before moving up to the next step. The pyramid helps teachers concurrently present melodic and harmonic skill development with core theory foundations.
The Pyramid starts slowly with one-finger chords and the notes on the first-three strings. As you climb the pyramid you get to more complex musical ideas and objectives. Try the Pyramid out with your class. Download the pdf.
