This book was written to develop musicianship in beginning guitarists. Teachers and students should use this book as a supplement to their current reading book.

It soon evolved into a series of pieces that not only reinforced musical and technical concepts, but it also became a collection of likable recital pieces for young performers. The pieces are written in varying styles so students learn to interpret the pitches and rhythms according to context and style.
A page of instructional notes accompanies each piece. The notes teach theoretical and historical concepts about the piece. In addition, six pieces have an extra worksheet for students to gain a little insight into how the piece was composed. For example, students can compose an accompaniment to one of the pieces and perform their version of the composition.< Less
