Flexible Learning

Fired Up supports your music program as a free-standing learning program. Designed to correspond to the academic calendar, Fired Up can be seamlessly integrated into a classroom environment.

Not all music programs have an guitar expert on staff. Fired Up was designed with this in mind. Our program supports your music department by allowing you to offer guitar instruction even when your instructor is not trained in the instrument.

Guitar Fundamentals

Fired Up Guitar Fundamentals 1-year Middle School or High School Program gives a foundational education in the specifics of guitar playing skills, and covers core music principals.

The course covers all seven major scale modes, and the seven diatonic triads, seventh chords and extensions built from those scale tones. By the end of the course students will be proficient in playing chord progressions and melodic passages in multiple keys, and have a full understanding of music theory, notation, and rhythmic figures.

Each week the students will engage in an ensemble performance of each aspect of the core curriculum, and the additional creative materials to inspire songwriting and collaborative musical skillsets.
