If you are a beginner classical guitarist, you can learn to play like the masters with a master teacher in London

Playing classical guitar today connects you to the masters of earlier times.

String instruments dates back to the days of ancient carvings and statues recovered from Egyptian, Sumerian and Babylonian civilisations. Music for the classical guitar started when the 6th string was added, way back in the 18th century.

From the Renaissance and Baroque periods, the classical guitar has evolved to modern times where it is one of the most popular forms of music today.

Now you can learn the basics of how to play and enjoy the exciting sound and style of classical guitar music as a beginner student in London.

It can be a difficult task, but it can also be enjoyable if taught in the right way and by the right teacher.

Stefan Joubert is the founder of the London Guitar Institute and is a master teacher. He has studied under some of the great guitarists. He knows that learning classical guitar is both challenging and exciting and he shares his music appreciation with you.

The London Guitar Institute has been working with beginner classical guitarists just like you in providing high-quality classical guitar lessons in central London (Mayfair and the City), and it allows its students to progress at their own individual rates.

As a student there, you won’t be rushed, and you will enjoy the journey of learning to play the music you love.

A growing list of students continues to recognise Stefan Joubert as the reason for their success and their enjoyment of music. They like the way he answers their questions, organises their lessons, shows patience, and explains everything so clearly.

That’s what a master teacher does.

A beginner classical guitarist in London needs a good foundation

If you want to learn to play classical guitar, you need a good foundation and a good start.

And the path to improvement is carefully planned with the right techniques and practice methodologies.

What are some of the things you will learn as a beginner classical guitarist in London? You will learn posture and sitting position, right-hand positioning and accuracy, left-hand positioning and independence.

You will learn fretboard and string techniques, arpeggio exercises, and advanced thumb techniques. You will discover how to modulate chords and shape melodies.

You will learn the free stroke (Tirando) for playing classical repertoires and the rest stroke (Apoyando) for bringing out a melodic line or projecting sound.

You will develop the ability to play musically using the smooth and connected style of legato and the short and detached style of staccato.

Learn harmonics and develop your own dynamic range (soft to loud).
