Guitar students transitioning from sight reading and technical basics to a standard repertoire by classical composers is a significant step. This collection of gems eases this transition. The pieces in this book have been carefully selected from the standard classical guitar repertoire–a group of pieces that have been played and loved by generations throughout the centuries. This second volume helps students make that transition by building upon the same principles in the first volume–a systematic approach that takes classical guitar students from a single melodic line to more complex textures, by familiarizing them with new notes through learning to play these classics. Fingering numbers are provided to make this process easier and serve to guide intermediate players through challenging passages.
Whether you are a student of the guitar or a guitar instructor, this collection can help you tackle the tough issues faced by guitarists who want to move on to the standard classical repertoire but are not yet ready for advanced study. These pieces will challenge students and familiarize them with classical guitar music, but not overwhelm them with difficulty. The pieces in this book roughly correspond to levels two through four in our LAGA Classical Curriculum, making this book a must-have for students in those levels or for guitar teachers needing resources to help meet their students’ needs at this crucial transition to more complex pieces. For more information, see the foreword.
