Registration, conditions for participating in the lessons

Post by Jean-François Delcamp » Wed Sep 10, 2014 12:59 pm

Hello everyone,

Each year, some time between the 1st and 7th of September, I will be starting a new series of lessons corresponding to the first eight years at music school (D01, D02, D03, D04, D05, D06, D07, D08).
My aim is to help isolated amateurs who do not have the opportunity of having a teacher. I ask my forum students to provide help and encouragement to one another. My role as teacher will be to give you a reasonable goal, offering you, while respecting copyright, a repertoire with the greatest possible musical value. I will be illustrating my lessons with video examples for each piece or exercise. Unfortunately I shall only rarely be able to reply to your questions through lack of available time.

Registration for courses at the first three levels (D01, D02, D03) is available to any member who has posted 2 messages on the forum: a message of introduction and a message requesting registration into the students group.
Registration for the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth year courses (D04, D05, D06, D07, D08) is available to members who have already posted 20 messages on the forum. Lessons at levels D06, D07 and D08 contain only video examples. These lessons contain no explanatory text.


Before accepting a new student, I require these four conditions to be met:
1. You must be registered on the forum with your real forename and surname. To change your username, post a request in the forum: "Your messages to the site administrator".
To register for the lessons and to confirm that you have satisfied the conditions set for participation in my courses, use the topic you are in now: "Conditions for participating in the lessons".
At the end of August, the Students group is reset, that is to say, it is emptied of its members. The Students group is open for new registrations and re-registrations from September to the end of December.
Students can participate at whichever level they choose, on whichever forum they choose (English, French, Italian or Spanish), on condition that they are able to express themselves well in the language of that forum. A student cannot register for online courses on more than one forum simultaneously.

2. You must publicize the lessons of the new session. Publicize the lessons, for instance, by putting up a notice in the window of your local baker or guitar store. Publicize them on FaceBook, Twitter, Youtube, discussion groups, your blog or website. The more students there are, the more effective the mutual help will be. Mention the lessons to your guitarist friends in conversation or by email.
Here is some suitable wording:
www.classicalguitardelcamp.com
Free classical guitar lessons on the internet
Lessons given by Jean-François Delcamp
The lessons will begin in September and finish in June.
These classical guitar lessons correspond to the first eight years at music school.
The lessons are free. They are aimed at the isolated amateur who does not have the opportunity of having a teacher.
The conditions for registration are available on the forum: http://www.classicalguitardelcamp.com/

3. You must undertake to post the video recordings required for at least 7 out of the 10 lessons of the course. If for some reason a student is temporarily unable to keep up with the course, he should let the other students know and catch up on the missed lesson or lessons as soon as possible. If the interruption goes on for several months, the student should alert a moderator of the student group so that the moderator can keep the student list up to date. A student can follow more than one course at different levels on condition that he undertakes to post the recordings required for at least 7 of the 10 lessons of each course. A student may change courses during the year up to the end of December, but in this case he must start by catching up on the lessons of his new course from the beginning. In order to be able to discuss fingerings, hand position and holding of the instrument, only video recordings are accepted. To follow the course you will need, as a minimum, a guitar plus a webcam or mobile phone which can take videos. Then you should post your video on YouTube or Vimeo and any other video-hosting website, because the forum server does not have the capacity to host the videos of the online courses.

4. You must undertake to listen to the recordings posted by the other students at the same level and comment on their work. This involves posting at least one message per week containing encouragement, constructive criticisms, or advice.
If two weeks have passed with no messages posted and no valid reason given (pressing work, health problem, etc.) the student will be unregistered from the lessons.
Students can ask for help on the forum at any time, whether in connection with the lessons or the working of the forum in general.





Conditions of use for Delcamp documents:
The scores, online guitar lessons, audio and video recordings found on Delcamp are free to use and free of copyright for private and non-commercial use. You are not authorized to distribute copies of any of them, either in their present format or converted into any other format. If you are a guitar teacher registered on one of the forums of this site, you are authorized to give out printed copies of scores from the forum to those of your students who do not have internet access. The help you provide to members of the forum is the contribution asked from you in return for free use of the documents made available to you on the forums. If you should cease to participate in the forum and stop helping its members, you should stop using Delcamp documents.




Calendar of lessons and exams for the session:
This is how the lessons will be conducted:
Around the beginning of each month during the period announced, I will post a new lesson. In my post I will indicate the pieces and exercises which should be practised during that month. The pieces are to be practised for posting in the lesson with a view to constructive discussion with the other students. I will provide links to the scores to be downloaded, along with numerous video recordings.

I ask all students to listen to the recordings of each of the other students at the same level and then to give their encouragement, their opinion and, if possible, their advice. Each student receiving advice from other forum users is invited to demonstrate that he can make good use of it by posting a new recording. All constructive advice will be welcome, and I am counting on the help of all forum users. In particular, I ask the help of my fellow teachers to assist, encourage, advise and finally promote the progress of the students of the online lessons.

The calendar in detail:
The 10 lessons of each of the levels from D01 to D08 will be posted and opened for use some time between the 1st and 7th of each month, during a 10 month period from September to June. Each lesson will be closed 3 months after posting. The lessons for levels D06, D07 and D08 will share the same discussion threads.


For the end-of-year exam I will be announcing a required piece from the public domain or one protected by copyright whose author has agreed to video recordings being posted on the forum.
First-year final exam 12, 13, 14 May. Announcement of the required piece, 12 april.
Second-year final exam 20, 21, 22 May. Announcement of the required piece, 20 april.
Third-year final exam 28, 29, 30 May. Announcement of the required piece, 28 april.
Fourth-year final exam 28, 29, 30 May. Announcement of the required piece, 28 april.
Fifth-year final exam 20, 21, 22 May. Announcement of the required piece, 20 april.
Sixth-year final exam 12, 13, 14 May. Announcement of the required piece, 12 april.
Seventh-year final exam 28, 29, 30 May. Announcement of the required piece, 28 april.
Eighth-year final exam 12, 13, 14 May. Announcement of the required piece between 1 and 7 March.



If you wish to take the end-of-year exam, you will need to register on the Spanish forum:
http://www.guitarraclasicadelcamp.com/ starting from the date when the required piece is announced.
When a student has obtained his diploma at a particular level, he cannot resit the exam at the same level.


Enjoy the online lessons and good luck to you all!

Hello everyone.

I have just updated the topic "Registration, conditions for participating in the lessons" with the new lesson dates and display posters, and have moved the old posts from that thread to the archives. I have also cleared out the "Students" group ready for new registrations from students who wish to follow the new 2015-2016 session.

Regards to all.

Hello!

I've posted a notice of the new year of lessons on the /r/classicalguitar and /r/guitarlessons sections of Reddit and told some friends about it who seemed interested in starting guitar. I will probably post a flyer in the math student lounge at my university as well. I have a pretty open schedule for the next year, so it's nice I can get started with this and have the time to dedicate to it. I plan on carefully following the whole schedule of lessons and will perform my duties as a student as outlined above.

Thanks!!!

I'm excited to be able to start the lessons!

Hi Marko et al.
Please register me for the online lessons.
I've not decided what level yet, but I'll probably step back and repeat D05 this year.
I've put up a poster at work, and publicized the lessons in my Classical guitar summer "recital" 2015
