Lesson: Lesson 46 by Sagreras (RCM Preparatory)


Graded Classical Guitar LessonsLesson 46 by Julio Sagreras for Classical Guitar
Level: RCM Preparatory Grade (Easy, Beginner)
Sheet Music Book (Amazon): RCM Guitar Preparatory Book

This lesson is for my graded repertoire lesson series which you can find halfway down the lesson archive page. When I teach guitar I have the student set up a model for technique and then they try to maintain that model when playing pieces. Therefore, straightforward pieces without too many weird shapes and stretches are very important for beginner to around grade 3 level students. This excludes many pieces but as a core set of works it is important.

Julio Salvador Sagreras (1879–1942) was an Argentine guitarist and composer. I love this piece for teaching because the chord shapes are simple and the right hand pattern repeats the entire time. Great for beginner students solidifying their arpeggios and chord recognition. Remember to keep good posture and positions (I’ve included a video for that too).
