More About the Author

Ron Manus is owner and CEO of Alfred Music Publishing, and co-owner of its sister company, Daisy Rock Girl Guitars. With five years of prior music industry experience in recording and retail sales, Ron joined Alfred in 1988 and today is the company's owner and CEO. He is chiefly responsible for managing all aspects of the company's MI & Pop publishing division, which creates products primarily for musicians who play guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, harmonica, mandolin, and other instruments.

Ron's energetic and creative contributions to Alfred have improved the company in many vital ways. In the 1980s, he managed the creation and growth of Alfred's New Media division, expanding the company's core strengths beyond book publishing and spurring the evolution of music instruction into contemporary mediums such as software, enhanced CDs, videos, and DVDs.

Ron played a key role during the 1990s when the company transitioned to its current team-based structure, a system that allows the business to react more quickly to changing market opportunities. In 1992, Ron improved Alfred's already industry-leading reputation by forming a partnership with the National Guitar Workshop, establishing Alfred as the exclusive publisher of their nationally acclaimed curriculum. In 2005, Ron was instrumental in the acquisition of Warner Bros. Publications from the Warner Music Group, which brought Alfred the music catalogs of artists including Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, Van Halen, Bruce Springsteen, Santana, Evanescence, Green Day, Nickelback, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Tony Bennett, and thousands more; composers including George and Ira Gershwin, Henry Mancini, Duke Ellington, John Williams, and thousands more; and legendary Broadway and movie music such as Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Batman, Superman, Corpse Bride, and thousands more.

Ron is one of Alfred's top-selling authors, having over 100 published titles to his credit, including instructional items for guitar, bass, banjo, harmonica and ukulele. In addition to holding prominent positions with Alfred and Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, he also plays guitar and sings in the rock-solid, no-nonsense, punk rock band sASSafrASS.

I have been teaching classroom music for over 30 years. I also teach guitar. I was always afraid to begin young children on guitar, because the coordination was too difficult for them. I discovered this book a few years ago. It is kid friendly. It has only a little music on each page, has fun pictures and clear explanations. A few years ago, I had several parents approach me to teach a guitar class to second graders. I have been using this book with the matching course book for about 5 years. The children love the book and are very excited as they advance through the pages. I see the advantage of 3 string chords, as well. The children learn to keep strumming as they change chords, rather than stopping to figure out how to make the chord. They also learn how to play simple melodies on the first three strings. The note speller is a great reinforcement of what they are learning in the course book. I highly recommend this guitar course to use for any beginning guitarist up through 10 years old.

This is a good accompaniment to the Kids Guitar Course books. Having my students fill in the pages reinforces what they are learning and helps me see what they understand and what they need to work on.

I have 2 criticisms:

1) Some of the pages are busy work. Many pages are devoted to basic theory items, such as drawing a treble clef, or drawing half-note slashes, which really don't enhance the student's understanding of note-reading or of guitar. I find myself skipping through and having the kids do only the pages that pertain specifically to notes and chords on the guitar. On the other hand, perhaps some people want this, so I suppose some people may find this useful.

2) It seems to devote a lot of space to things I don't care much about, and not go into enough depth in others. I would like to see pages with games and puzzles that reinforce note reading skills and note placement, for example. Piano workbooks for young students have these, and it seems a guitar workbook for young students should have these as well.

This is the best set of books I've found so far for young students, and this series is usable as is. I would like future editions to include pages of games that reinforce note-reading and note placement on the guitar.
