As far as I know Segovia was pretty much self-taught; Bream and Williams studied piano at the Royal College of Music; Parkening was a prodigy of sorts and was already touring when he was a teenager. I don't think there were guitar departments in colleges of music when those 4 were in their formative years. It was because of them and others that the guitar is now studied seriously in universities.
