Beginner Level

Proceed through the book and video lessons while using the technique section at the back as a warmup. Everything you need is in the book and all the videos are listed on the sales page (just scroll down to the list). It’s all free and should get you started with reading and playing melodies and arpeggios.


Late-Beginner Level

Proceed through the book while using the technique section at the back. Everything you need is in the book and videos help you with each section. You could supplement this with some of the easy supplemental material listed above if you feel confident.


Early-Intermediate – Grade 1

When you arrive at the Grade 1 level it’s time to have a dedicated technique book as well. Study both books together using my technique book for your technical warmup and the grade 1 book for repertoire. The technique book has multiple technique routines at various levels to limit the material to a manageable amount. Feel free to proceed through the technique levels faster than your repertoire.


Early-Intermediate – Grade 2

As you progress through the grades continue with more difficult technique routines from my technique book. Continue to supplement the experience with repertoire at the appropriate grade level or use my Easy Classical Guitar Vol.1 or 2 collection which contains repertoire between grade 1-3.


Early-Intermediate – Grade 3

As you progress through the grades continue with more difficult technique routines from my technique book. Continue to supplement the experience with repertoire at the appropriate grade level or use my Easy Classical Guitar Vol.1 or 2 collection which contains repertoire between grade 1-3.

What Happens After Grade 4?

Although I will be making more grades all the way to grade 8, after grade 4 it will be time to dive into some fretboard knowledge books as supplements. I’m still creating these books but for now I will recommend some good ones from others.
