I have been teaching classical guitar for 30 years.
We work on sight reading, ear training, and theory.
I have an easy style and like my students to enjoy their lessons.
I like for my guitar students to read music, and I work with them using a classical book that has beautiful and easy duets in it. I play with the students, and as they begin to develop I encourage them to trade parts with me so that they can play both parts of the duet. There is a 2nd volume to the book that I use that has more difficult pieces in it. I use Volume II for the students who are more serious about playing classical guitar.
