I am a guitar teacher. I’ve also been playing the classical guitar for over 10 years. I have studied in Spain and done master classes with some of the most incredible musicians in the world. The classical guitar is one of the most satisfying, fun, and expressive instruments you can learn. It is not just for fans of folk. Here are some reasons why it’s worth learning to play the classical guitar:
1. It is easy to play on your own, yet sounds great as part of an ensemble
2. The classical guitar is a great vehicle for composing
3. It’s not too difficult to learn
4. You can play music by Bach(and others) on it!
5. The classical guitar is portable (can fit in a backpack)
6. The classical guitar has a rich history and tradition
7. It will inspire you to be a better musician
Have you ever considered learning to play the classical guitar? You may think that it is not the right fit for you, but with a little bit of practice, you could be playing well before your next birthday. The classical guitar is a great instrument to play, and if you are looking for something fun and creative to do in your spare time, it may be just the right choice for you.
The first thing that you should know about the classical guitar is that it is not just for fans of folk music. It can be played by anyone who has a basic knowledge of music theory and an eye for detail. If you have ever taken a course in music theory, then you will understand how important it is to learn proper technique so that you can play any type of music on any instrument. You do not have to be a fan of folk music or even a folk singer to play this instrument.
If you want to learn how to play the guitar, there are many things that you will need before you begin. Some people choose to buy their own instruments, while others prefer to hire someone else to teach them. There are pros and cons associated with both methods, but in general if you choose a professional teacher they will make sure that your lessons are done correctly and teach you
The classical guitar has a reputation amongst the rest of the musical world as being a “folk” instrument. It’s something that you play at coffee houses or while camping around a fire. It’s not technically a guitar and it’s certainly not anything that you should consider playing in public. It’s okay if you like the sound, but let’s be honest, it doesn’t have any real place in the music world today.
The truth is that nothing could be further from the truth. The classical guitar is just as legitimate an instrument as any other. Unfortunately, it has gained this reputation because people tend to associate it with folk music and they don’t see its place in other types of music. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have one! If you’re considering learning to play the guitar, then you really should learn how to play the classical guitar. Here are some reasons why:
1) It’s less popular than electric guitars
2) It’s seen as more of a challenge
3) Its sounds are unique
I have been teaching classical guitar for over 20 years. I love it, and I think it is the most beautiful instrument in the world. It has been my joy to teach many people how to play this wonderful instrument.
I have also had many students come to me that started on acoustic guitar, and couldn’t make the transition to classical guitar. After a few lessons they would quit!
In this article I want to show you why learning classical guitar is hard, but worth the effort.
The classical guitar is an amazing instrument, but it’s not as popular as it should be. It’s literally the only instrument that has no competition from electronic reproduction, and for good reason: it can’t be reproduced electronically.
The movement of air around a classical guitar is what makes the sound. If you’ve ever wondered why picking up a guitar and playing sounds so much better than playing the same thing on a keyboard, this is why. When you play a keyboard, you’re pressing down on pieces of plastic that are imitating the sound of a piano. The sound is produced by speakers, and your fingers are hitting plastic instead of strings. When you play a classical guitar, however, you’re producing an entire symphony with just your hands.
The best way to learn how to play classical guitar is to start learning with easy songs and then work your way up to harder ones.
When I was a kid, my dad could play guitar. He never did it in front of many people, or even for his kids, but I remember him playing sometimes. When I would go to my grandma’s house, she would make me take guitar lessons. Little did she know that I had no musical talent whatsoever. My first guitar teacher was a very nice man who knew a lot about music and how to play the classical guitar, but he knew nothing about how to teach children.
I hated playing the guitar. It hurt my fingers, and I wasn’t good at it. After a few months of lessons and not practicing, I quit lessons with Mr. Jones and waited until seventh grade to try again. In seventh grade, I took band class and played the clarinet. After two years of that, I decided that music wasn’t meant for me.
When I was 16 years old, my dad asked me if I wanted an electric guitar for Christmas. My brother already had one, so I thought it would be cool to have one too. But when Christmas morning came around, the only thing under the tree for me was a classical guitar case with a note attached: “Don’t worry about lessons; just watch YouTube.”
At first I didn’t know
