Lesson: Dreams by Richard Summers (easy)

Lesson: Dreams by Richard Summers for Classical Guitar
Level: RCM Preparatory Grade (Post-Method, Easy, Beginner)
Sheet Music Book: 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.

Dreams by Richard Summers is a favourite of many students using the Preparatory RCM Bridges book as it has mysterious mood and is a more mature work compared to most of the pieces in the book. Remember to keep good posture and positions (I’ve included a video for that too).
