Then you’ll jump right in and learn to read music, play clear and beautiful notes and chords, and control your rhythm, tempo, and volume. And finally, you’ll discover how to add expression and artistry to your music. The classical guitar skills you’ll master in this course will allow you to play any style of music, from hard rock to country-and-western. Whether you’re a beginner or an intermediate student, you’ll gain new skills and confidence with each lesson—and by the end of the course, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a skilled guitar player.

You will also need a guitar in good working condition and an adjustable footstool for correct positioning. It’s advisable to purchase a metronome for developing your rhythm skills and a music stand so you can practice in a correct playing position.
