About & Level: This book teaches classical guitar repertoire at approximately the grade one level. This level is appropriate for students who have completed both my Volume 1 and Volume 2 method books. The pieces in this book appear in a progressive order starting with easy pieces and slowly introducing new techniques, oddity fingerings, or increased activity. The main goal is to teach students how to practice their repertoire by breaking it down into separate elements. Check out the samples in the image gallery on Werner Guitar Editions. Keep in mind that this book has no connection to other graded systems, some selections are harder or easier for variety and skill development.

Contents – Each piece has two or three pages of lessons followed by a proper performance edition of the piece.
