Augment your guitar teaching skills, add variety to your guitar class, and expand your personal playing style by learning the Classical Guitar. With a rich history of music from Renaissance through 21st Century, and featuring finger-picking techniques appropriate for solo and ensemble repertoire, studying the classical guitar introduces your students to music from around the world and sparks improvements in their playing technique and musical expression. Dr. Goldberg is the co-author of 100 Classical Guitar Lessons, published by Hal Leonard. Using this text as a guide, participants will explore classical guitar technique, repertoire, history and performance style. Practical exercises, lesson plans, repertoire recommendations and teaching strategies will be presented. Although this class will review the basics of the guitar and guitar playing, some previous guitar playing experience is recommended.
Date: August 17-18, 2017 – 9:00 am to 4:30 pm each day
