Classical guitar performance pieces. Practice. Perform. Enjoy!

A wide repertoire of performance pieces exist for the classical guitar. There are many, many very beautiful pieces that are appropriate for beginners and intermediate players. This section is to encourage you to play, keep playing and then play some more.  It includes repertoire frequently played by beginner to intermediate guitarist and contains a mixture of latin, rhythmic, melodic, romantic and popular pieces.

I’m getting a lot of messages from people coming here because they want to learn to play guitar as part of worship. If this is you, you might want to join Aaron Anastasi’s programme. Aaron is a musician and a worship leader. He put together a step by step programme for aspiring Christian musicians. If you're interested, you can use the exercises and advice in learn-classical-guitar-today to develop your finger strength and dexterity and Aaron's lessons to work on strumming and worship music. 


It also includes the repertoire prescribed in the guitar syllabus developed by the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) and the Trinity Guitar syllabus. Particularly the guitar pieces played by candidates in the Grade One, Grade Two, Grade Three, Grade Four and Grade Five guitar examinations.  

If you’ve come here after finishing the seven Beginner Classical Guitar lessons then WELL DONE FOR THIS ACHIEVEMENT. Classical guitar is available to everyone. The mental process is immediate. It’s the realisation that you, like everybody else in the world, was born with an innate musicality and that all you have to do is to allow it to emerge. The technical process is, however, a step by step process. It’s almost like baking a cake. In a cake you have to got to cream the butter and sugar before you move to the next step. If you don’t do this, your cake will flop. Classical guitar is exactly like this. Click on the pieces below for a free online lesson and links to the sheet music: Leo Brouwer Etude 1

You'll need to go a little deeper into music theory as you proceed. The best online resource for this is Guitar Theory Revolution. It recognises that music theory is very hard for guitarists because music theory has till now been located in the piano paradigm. The Guitar Theory Revolution overthrows the piano paradigm that is holding you back and embraces the attributes of the guitar to unpack music theory. In fact, it goes further and allows you to see that the guitar is one of the best instruments for learning theory.
