26 Melodic Studies For Guitar Reference Universal Edition Ue21670
As a new member to UK Guitar Teachers I would like to take this opportunity to introduce a recent publication by Universal Edition of 26 Studies for Guitar. The book aims to be suitable for initial players through to moderately experienced players and includes short pieces that will be technically of help with the students progress. The review (as below) by Carlos Bonell is very encouraging and I hope the studies will prove to be a valuable aid to teachers and students alike. Please see the link below for some illustrative information.
These studies have been written to help the student to develop a basic technique based upon the traditional teachings of Francisco Tárrega, Fernando Sor and Mauro Giuliani to name but a few. The studies progress from relatively easy to more demanding pieces so it is an album designed to accompany the student on their journey as they advance from an initial to an intermediate standard. The contemporary style of the music is tuneful and light so that they are both fun and interesting to play and fingerings have been carefully considered for accuracy and ease of facility.
Carlos Bonell on 26 Melodic Studies
Carlos Bonell Paul Coles brings to these studies his combined skills as composer, guitar player and teacher and sets out a clear technical and musical route map for the student to achieve excellent results.
More than plain studies, he uses a pleasing and up-to-date musical language. Here are some pieces with catchy melodies, jazzy harmonic turns and foot-tapping rhythms.
I am sure they will inspire the student to learn and enjoy at the same time – an ideal combination!
