Classical Guitar Method, Preparatory is the first in a progressive series of books by Wissam Abboud; using a wide variety of musical repertoire and educational material to provide a solid technical foundation for classical guitar students, exposing the full range of the instrument’s potential and repertoire.
Preparatory book is most appropriate for students with little prior knowledge of the guitar, or those who completed the first book in this series (Debut). It is written in four broad sections: Progressive Studies and Pieces, Technical Exercises, Chords & Chord Progressions and Rhythmic Reading. Tips on how to integrate the four sections are provided throughout the book. Every chapter begins with exercises written specifically to improve a certain aspect of one’s playing, followed by various examples from the classical music repertoire and traditional songs from various cultures.
While every aspect of classical guitar technique is clearly described and illustrated, students using this book would still benefit from the advice and constructive feedback of a competent teacher. Consequently, teachers will find opportunities to assert their individual teaching perspectives within this method, making it a perfect roadmap for the instructor and student?s musical journey.
This book is written in standard notation only and comes with extensive online audio examples.
