In this course, you’ll learn to play classical music in a way that faithfully recreates the original works. A lot of times, classical pieces are arranged and taught using a ukulele-style of playing. While there’s nothing wrong with this approach, it does lack the authenticity that comes from performing with classical guitar techniques.
This course teaches you the fundamentals that every classical guitarist uses. You’ll start by learning proper right hand form before embarking on picking techniques.
Next, we’ll move beyond playing techniques by studying stylistic approaches. Part of what makes classical music so appealing is the way it’s performed. It’s a highly expressive style of music and we’ll show you two ways to amplify emotion in your performances.
At the end of this course, you’ll combine everything you’ve learned to perform a challenging piece by Francisco Tárrega (a.k.a. “the father of classical guitar”).
