In Introduction to Classical Guitar, you will not only learn the fundamentals of classical guitar, but the fundamentals of guitar itself. I am a firm believer that learning classical guitar is one of the best building blocks for learning any style of guitar. This course will cover things like musical notation, technique, music history, musicality, and much more. As we work through Classical Guitar Method: Volume 1 by Bradford Werner, we will learn a multitude of fun, enjoyable, beautiful pieces of music. And most important of all, we will have fun!
If you want to learn guitar or even get better at it, this is the course for you. Learning the fundamentals of classical guitar will set you up for a lifetime of playing guitar. Whether you go on to play classical, acoustic or electric guitar, there is something for everyone in this course.
Upon finishing this course, student will be able to read music, play with correct technique, and understand basic musical concepts. In addition, students will have learned how to play melody and harmony at the same time, they will have learned chords, and will have three capstone pieces of music to share with family and friends.
This course is geared toward anyone interested in learning guitar!
