Guitar Karate Grading Rubric*
Students are taken through an incredible journey and the true test of a Guitar Ninja. Each Guitar Karate lesson includes three guitar chords which are the 1,4, & 5 chord to a 12 bar blues. Each student must learn the three chords and play to a 12 bar blues backing track in order to advance to the next karate belt.
It is great for a bulletin board to have the Karate Belts hanging in order outside, or inside your classroom. Print out ninja slips that kids write their names on, and if they pass the performance task of the "White Belt" then they may put their name on the white belt that is hanging outside on the bulletin board. This is the greatest motivating factor for the students, measures their progress, and shows them the long-term goal which will result in them knowing all guitar chords at the end of the neck of the guitar.
When kids have made it through all Karate belts, they may go on to play almost any pop song they love personally with the guitar chords they have learned, and may also learn how to write their own songs using those chords.
