If you are someone with limited and unpredictable “me time”, CGC’s combination of well structured curriculum, “always on” availability, and skilled, enthusiastic, personable instructors provides an ideal stairway to classical guitar heaven.

Several years of using self-help method books, online tutorials and video exchange programs had left me frustrated with what always seemed a piecemeal approach to advancing my guitar studies.  When I discovered the CGC Academy with its expertly structured, grades 1-8 curriculum, a highly responsive and dedicated staff, and a global community of fellow students eager to share the journey, I knew I’d found a new home.  Seven years on and I could not be happier with my decision – coaching calls, performance seminars, member challenges, open mics, summer school, feedback from fellow students and instructors – all have served to take my playing to a level I never thought possible.
