“For every ounce of technique, there needs to be a pound of application.”
— Bill Swick

That’s why simply buying a method book won’t ensure that your students will learn and enjoy music. Traditional method books are great for providing the ounce of technique, but there are not enough music exercises, etudes, and ensemble pieces for students to practice, drill and perform every day.

The ultimate "Classroom in a box" designed to supplement any method book

When paired with Music Prodigy, Bill Swick's 1st Year Guitar Method includes the music, PDFs, teacher’s manual, practice app and teacher’s dashboard that brings to life… “An ounce of technique, this is the pound of application.” Plus, it seamlessly works alongside any method books your school currently might have.

We guarantee you'll save time and effort.

We’re so sure that if you use Bill Swick’s Year 1 and it doesn’t do what it says, we’ll refund your purchase, no problem.
