Villa Lobos Prelude 1 Lesson

Prelude Number 1 by Heitor Villa Lobos is one of the great works composed for classical guitar. From its full sounding resonance to the cello-like melody, this piece has been a favorite of students and concert performers alike.


This video covers several of the main concepts in the piece, but it is just one part of a seven part course available to members of Classical Guitar Corner. If you would like to access the full course, and hundreds of other lessons, you can start your membership here.

    Simon, is the sheet music for Villa Lobos Prelude 1 on the website, or something we need to order? Which website is best for ordering guitar sheet music?

    I am enjoying my CGC lessons immensely!! Put together so well, so I’m enjoying this musical journey.
