I have been this teaching this instrument for 3 years. I use the Aaron Shearer book as the first instruction to how to play the instrument. Then I go through Carcassi's 25 Studies and Leo Brouwer's New Studies before I teach any professional repertoire.

I believe that careful and strategic practice combines with great instruction leads to music success.
