Greetings from Seattle, Washington

Post by halvrsngrp » Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:21 pm

My name is Al. I am 76 and have determined to become proficient in classical guitar. When I was 14 I took a year of classical guitar lessons, then switched to piano and organ. I studied with some very fine teachers during and after college, but was led into other lines of endeavor. Two years ago I decided to revisit my musical interests but do it right this time (plant the music in my mind and play from the heart). Still a beginner, I am working on Lagrima (Tarrega), Prelude in dm (999) by Bach, a Sor study (Segovia 5). When these have been mastered I have a playlist that will be more challenging. I follow an online teacher who has been a great help with the techniques and disciplines of serious musicality. Looking forward to being involved in this new community of learners. :merci:

Hi Al; Make sure you check out the Seattle Classical Guitar Society, and Rosewood Guitar in the Greenwood neighborhood. If you decide to go for live one-on-one instruction, Rosewood has a great cast of instructors.
