An Introduction To Classical Guitar
The classical guitar (also called the Spanish guitar) is the member of the guitar family used in classical music. It is an acoustical wooden guitar with strings made of nylon as opposed to the metal strings used in acoustic and electric guitars. The traditional classical guitar has 12 frets clear of the body and is held on the left leg so that the hand falls at the back of the soundhole. The steel string guitar, on the other hand, has fourteen frets clear of the body and is played off the hip.
Students are taught a stimulating, thorough, and graduated course of recital solos, theory, technical studies and classic guitar repertoire. Class size varies from 2-3, with group activities as well as one-on-one intruction. A group atmosphere is often more beneficial and enjoyable for beginning to intermediate level students because they are motivated by their peers, but are also allowed to progress at their own pace.
