Marcy Marxer plays a number of different instruments and regularly performs for children. She's an instructor who relates well to kids and enjoys teaching them how to play the guitar. These lessons help young newcomers select the proper-sized guitar, learn how to hold the instrument, and tune it. Marxer also shows kids how to play the most basic chords and strum the strings in a rhythmic fashion. Students will also learn how to play in three different keys (D, G, and C). Many of these skills are taught as she shows children how to play such songs as "Down by the Riverside," "Michael Row the Boat Ashore," "Buffalo Gals," and "Skip to My Lou." The video is geared to children ages eight to 12.
