Meet your teacher, Dr. Simon Powis

Simon Powis
I am a guitarist just like you and I am excited to share my knowledge and experience. I was awarded a doctorate from Yale University, performed in Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, taught in international universities and masterclasses and I maintain an active performance career. I say this only to convey that I have passion for both performance and education and through this site I have been privileged to help hundreds of guitarists like you to improve their playing.

Bonus Materials in Your Annual Membership

Course Books

As an Annual Member you will have access to all of the course books that are normally available for purchase in the online store. You can download the books as you need them and you will find they are an invaluable resource to your studies.

Technical Routines, Repertoire Books, Scales Sets, Giuliani Right Hand Studies… they are all included in your Annual Membership.

The Masterclass Series

I have invited some of my colleagues to conduct masterclasses just for the CGC members. These in-depth masterclasses focus on repertoire and their associated techniques. The pieces chosen are from Level 3 through 5 and represent and intermediate to advanced level. Current masterclasses include Gohar Vardanyan teaching Recuerdos de la Alhambra and Kevin Gallagher teaching Llobet’s El Testament D’Amelia.

Certificate Courses

Annual members can take advantage of the Certificate Courses. These courses walk you through step by step, lesson by lesson through the entire curriculum. At the end of the course you can submit your playing to receive a certificate of completion. A wonderful way to set goals and map your progress.

A Message From the Members…

“I’m having a phenomenal time and I cannot recommend it enough anyone”
“I would highly recommend this site to anyone who is approaching guitar as a beginner, intermediate, or even advanced player.”
“Simon has a structure that brings students up to a level they never thought they would achieve.”
