Guitar Performance – Stage 1, Foundation 2
At Stage 1 Foundation 2 in Guitar Performance Learners will be able to perform pieces to a backing track that are longer than Foundation 1. Technical requirements will require them to demonstrate hammer on and pull offs as well as simple modes. Rhythms will be further developed to include triplets. They will also demonstrate theoretical knowledge of the performance pieces by showing and describing musical terms and directions, where and how they are used. In addition, they will show stage presence through the addition of appropriate body language and awareness of an audience in their performance.
