It of course saddens me to hear this and especially so in only just having discovered this great privilege. I do, however understand completely than no matter the passion, life does indeed have so much more to offer as well. As far as the lessons being copied or not I would offer that as they are, they are none the less an invaluable gift to all who find themselves here and with each members personal growth, it must be allowed that much that appears to need improving right now are I assume for enhancement of the members learning, yet the intent of those improvements will be polished and learned over time by the individual members all the same and so what is here now is not diminished even so.

Thanks so much, I located the downloads of the lesson books what I was really looking for. I am working my way through the first one. I do hope these lessons resume as this is a wonderful thing Professor DelCamp has started here.

Hi Daniel,

Registration starts in September, but you can start looking at most of the materials now. As Jacek says, you will not be able to access the scores for levels D04 and above until you have enough posts to join the 020 group, but the good news is that you can already access the scores for the first three levels, and can view the existing lesson topics here for all levels. Have a look at the four posts starting here for some advice and useful links given to another member in a similar position. If you have any further questions about registering, that is the best place to ask, and the lesson moderators will be able to advise you further.

Though I am a new member to this web site, after browsing the forums, I can see the tremendous value your lessons have had for the students and would like to encourage you to continue putting on the lessons, even if you think they could be better. As a mathematician, the seminal works in the field are often decades old and still have great value. Similarly, I would argue that the most areas of the study of guitar have a certain timelessness to them, and even though you may not be able to constantly update things, the lessons still provide much edification for your students.

Regards,
Jay Bromley

I only just found this site and can't even access the classes or scores yet but I have already found a wealth of information and it is obvious that your students are incredibly grateful for your classes.

While I hope to be able to take the classes I completely understand the need to do other thinks. I also love kayaking. ;) Wishing you the best in whichever you decide.

has any decisions been made regarding the future of the availability of the online lessons? I do hope and pray that you keep them accessible with the video demonstrations. Even if you never change nor update anything these are a priceless and extremely beneficial resource for many who would otherwise be without access to the knowledge and wisdom this site provides.

Yes, I'm pleased to say the lessons are continuing, though there are unlikely to be any further updates to the content.

Thank you so much. even if they were simply archive format, it would be much better than nothing, but to continue the interactive lessons are so much better, even with the same lesson formats. many college professors go their entire career with little to no changes in there lesson plans and outlines. What's being done here surpasses most college courses easily.

I am Just now seeing this as I am new here. What I can say is that what has been created on this site is monumental in terms of access to classical guitar for the average person like myself. This forum for learning classical guitar is in and of itself a legacy for Mssr. Delcamp. Regardless of your decision in the future for this site, what you have created here will be an enduring memory of you and your love of music and your generosity to all of us who wish to try and achieve something in the realm of classical guitar.

Je vous salue et vous avez mes plus sincères remerciements pour votre générosité. Vous êtes en effet quelqu'un dont on se souviendra.

Dear Maestro Delcamp,

thank you for creating and maintaining this amazing site. Please, take any time you need to recharge. I do hope that you come back and the next generation of students will benefit from your insights. If not, I hope you'll allow others to continue with your legacy. Either way, enjoy your life!

Hi all,

I have just come back after some absence to find this. Of course I wish Maestro Delcamp every success in his endeavours in life, he truly deserves this and we are thankful too him for all he did for us.

But I am just curious how the classes are being managed now please? Are these old recordings? Are we still getting feedback? Just wanted to sign up for classes and wonder if I missed anything (of course we will miss maestro that is for sure).

Regards,

Tea

Hello Tea,

Yes, the lessons are being managed in the same way. Basically the previous year's lessons are being repeated with a new intake of students, and the students provide mutual feedback to one another, as before. Levels D01 to D05 are available on all forums, while levels D06 and D07 are on the Spanish forum only and consist of demonstration videos (no lesson text) followed by mutual feedback. There is also a new level D08 on the Spanish forum run by the students themselves, working on an agreed set of pieces with discussion and mutual feedback.
