About the Course

Classical Guitar Lessons for Beginners will cover all aspects of learning the guitar.  In the first 10 lessons, you will learn: 

  • Comfortable setup and posture for playing the instrument;
  • How to tune your guitar;
  • Playing technique for both hands;
  • How to create a good quality sound on the strings;
  • The names of the notes and chords as they lie on the guitar fretboard;
  • Scales;
  • Chord progressions;
  • Music theory;
  • Reading music; and
  • Beautiful beginner classical guitar songs.

As Amy Hite continues the course into further lessons, you will learn a wide variety of music from all different time periods from the Renaissance through the modern contemporary 21st century.  We will also dig deeper into musicality, technical exercises, and music theory.  You will learn to read music at a high level and understand the fretboard from the inside-out.  

Many of Amy's students that continue with lessons end up participating in the Royal Conservatory certificate program. This is a graded certificate program in which students take exams to pass levels each year on classical guitar. As the certificate program is offered throughout the United States and even elsewhere around the world, you can take this course online and take the exams locally near you.  Of course, the certificate program is only optional, but it's a great way to stay motivated and on track learning the guitar.
