"one of the best [tutor books] I have ever seen..."
-Chris Dumigan, Classical Guitar Magazine

The book is made up of three parts:

  1. A classical guitar tutor
  2. Ensemble supplement
  3. Song/chord tutor

Guitar Academy Book 2 continues the broad and varied approach to learning guitar established in Book 1. Thus, as well as learning the skills typically associated with the classical guitarist – technique, repertoire and reading music – the student develops the skills more common to popular styles of music, such as chord knowledge, accompaniment, and improvisation. There are also many opportunities for ensemble work and ear training.

  • Technique: Developing free-stroke technique , chords and arpeggios; all explanations are supported by high-quality illustrations
  • Music Theory: syncopation, accidentals, key signatures, the 6/8 time signature, Italian terms, swing rhythms, scales & modes, the 12-bar blues, chord theory – primary chords & transposition, completing the knowledge of first position by learning the notes on the bass strings
  • Song/Chord supplement: popular songs with suggested strumming rhythms & finger-picking styles
  • Ensemble Supplement: trios and quartets
  • Improvisation: being creative with various scales/modes
  • Ear training: exercises to encourage playing by ear; recognizing intervals and chords, with associated tests included on the CD (now also online)
  • Extra Features: pupil/teacher duets, written tests, website links and resources, homework diary, full-color illustrations
  • CD with backing tracks (audio tracks now also online

"The Guitar Academy series is a well-thought out set of learning materials designed to provide a fun and engaging experience for the beginning guitarist. One of the great things about this series is that it can be used by a teacher and student, in a classroom setting or by a student on their own, and the learning experience will not be diminished in any fashion. Hats off to Corr for putting together such a successful series of books, and for expanding the options students have for learning materials as they begin their journey to learning this great instrument."
