Terrific classical guitar site worth checking out.

Post by Dofpic » Thu Mar 09, 2017 6:57 pm

This is a terrific site to read about music, guitar technique, practicing,teaching, and current players who pass through his program which is numerous. Very much worth reading from a teacher who has produced some great players as well as ones who might have lacked talent but he turned them into excellent players. There is a lot more on this blog than this current page.

I met Stephen Aron, his delightful wife, and a posse of his Oberlin students at the Classical Guitar Retreat in Scotland last summer. He is a really nice chap, smart, and a great guitarist. His group made a huge contribution to that festival. I began seeing some of his blogs then, and have continued since. He writes with a breadth of knowledge and a sensitive style. He is well worth following.

Had it bookmarked for years. I think Aron has retired from his position at Oberlin, so the content may not be updated as often as before.

Hmm
Yes and no.
Some insightful tidbits.
I'm not a pro. Too fickle.
Not a teacher. No patience, tact or diplomacy.
But......
In the scale section.
Knocking Segovia is a no no.
I can do that and it's ok.
And mentioning electric guitar in a supposed to be classical guitar site.
At present I can't and don't want to understand his take on scales.
Maybe it needs more elucidation.
I know. It is that I need an attitude adjustment.
So like stated before, at the present time it is gibberish. (Scale section)
On the positive side, there is some good stuff here. In other sections.

Knocking Segovia is a no no .......whaaat. Questioning people's methods is how civilization advances. Anyways , there are lots of people on this site inquiring about the best learning method for someone who doesn't have a teacher. Look no further . Stephen Aron site is the one you've been looking for .

I like that.
Civilization?
Advances?
Where would that be?

He has not retired from Oberlin and is very active there. There is also a position my recent competition held last weekend. I was his first grad assistant back in 1982-84. Great teacher one of the few who can really help those of us without prodigious talent yet can take someone with amazing talent and ability and push them to be their best.

Thanks Dofpic! I really thought I remembered getting an email update from his blog last year that said he was moving on. Maybe I'm confusing him with someone else - entirely possible!. Glad to hear this!

This is an excellent site, and I like the uncluttered layout, too. I will be trying Aron's scale system. Thanks for posting this.
