Michael, thank you so much for the link to the beautiful playing of Chopin by Tatyana Ryzhkova. Her playing is amazing! I have always been partial to classical piano composers – Beethoven and Bach being my all time favorites but Chopin coming in not that far behind – and she plays not only very beautifully but also, as you said, plays them so…[Read more]
That was very nice Terry – although I am certainly no expert and not very far into Level 1. I love watching your videos and look forward to when I will have some of my own to share – although at the moment I have no clue as to how to accomplish that. I really like the split scene. If you have any tips for the rest of us I am sure we are all…[Read more]
Simon, a very Happy New Year to you as well, and to Dave and the rest of the crew. You all have successfully combined your talents and ideas to create a wonderful, supportive and extremely thorough educational website for learning the classical guitar. I am so glad that I found your site and decided to join. Thank you so very much for all that…[Read more]
It’s 12/31/16 and I have just completed the Foundation Course (although I will be continuing to practice the exercises for quite some time) and will officially be starting Level 1 Course tomorrow, 1/1/17. Yeah!!!!
Good for you, Julian! I am happy that you are excited about setting a practice schedule. Please, however, remember to set reasonable and doable goals that are easily attainable. The purpose of this is to get into the habit of practicing every day. When you succeed at it you will feel a great sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. You can…[Read more]
Hello Julian and welcome to CGC. I am a fairly new beginner (started about a month ago) and am thoroughly enjoying the CGC website not only for the quality of the lessons and tutelage but also for the supportive community.
I have a very busy life with work and life responsibilities and have, over the years, found an extremely effective method…[Read more]
You click on the courses link at the top right of the page, scroll down to the level you will be working on and just below all the links to the courses it has the course material for that level. Good luck and welcome to CGC.
Be @ Peace,
Bonnie, a big welcome to Classical Guitar Corner. I am a new yearly member of less than one month so I can say, unequivocally, that this school, Simon’s knowledge and expertise (and that of the rest of the crew here), the curriculum of lessons, and the ever so thoughtful and helpful community of members is way more than I bargained for. I trust…[Read more]
Welcome Ian. That is certainly an interesting reason to take up playing the guitar. Just curious, is your interest in Neurobiology work related or personal. I have always been fascinated with the brain and mind, how they work and how one can consciously affect their functioning but it is merely personal curiosity that drives me. Anyway, hope…[Read more]
I agree Steve. Even if I could nail down my schedule to a particular time and day every week (that is most definitely an impossibility for me while owning my own business), I live in a small town in the center of Texas that doesn’t have quite the options of teachers you mentioned (especially compared with Simon’s resume). As well, the cost of…[Read more]
Welcome to CGC. I am a newbie to this website (joined last week) and I have to say that I am extremely impressed with it’s high quality of structure, lessons, and personal interactions and instruction. The community here is quite warm, accepting, welcoming and diverse with very talented musicians from around the world sharing their…[Read more]
A big welcome and best wishes on your journey with the classical guitar. I have found this website to be extremely organized and the lessons very well thought out and structured. I am confident that Simon will be able to advise you with your particular challenges and steer you in the best direction for your success. All the best.
Be @ Peace,
