Learning to Play the Guitar

Angela LaCroix


This project has impacted the way I interpret music and the people that compose the music that they do. Others are impacted by playing the guitar by connecting to the music playing.

Facts Learned About Playing

Playing the guitar is very therapeutic, it calms the mind and gives time to focus on the music. It is also a learning difficulty to teach yourself how to play. Another fact is that it is a very well conversation starter to meet new people.


I chose to learn how to play the guitar for my 20% project because i have always had an interest in learning how to play but have never had the time to do so. This project allows me to work on other things so i have more time at home to learn how to play.


I have faced many challenges trying to teach myself how to play. Youtube videos have helped a lot in this process but it doesnt help when i can not ask questions. I also never rally know if Im making the sound Im supposed to be making. So far with doing this project weve just been doing pointless busy work that does not help me at all with doing my project. I hope to have more time in the future to actually do my project.
