Abstract

The purpose of this treatise is to discuss general principles of learning as they relate to classical guitar instruction, review extant guitar methods in wide use, and provide a beginning method book for the classical guitar. Five principles of learning are explored in relation to guitar pedagogy: Early integration of skills, pattern recognition development, sequencing of material, use of pre-existent knowledge, and the development of metacognition. The final chapter describes the author’s guitar method, “An Integrated Approach to Beginning Music-Making on the Guitar,” which is written to conform to the five principles of learning cited above.
