In this course you will build up on what you have learned in Level 1.
Learn and implement arpeggio patterns. Arpeggio technique is an important asset for the classical guitar player. With the foundation that you have from Level 1- plucking chords in variety of ways, you will find that it will be just natural for you to learn and implement this new technique.
Learn new ways of eliciting chords - different plucking and strumming techniques, introduced to you in an explicit way, following the ones that you learned earlier.
Music theory - closely related with the music that is presented in the course. I will not teach you things that you don't need now. But in contrary the theory is restricted to the terms and symbols which you see in the score that you play.
Ensemble playing - Duets, Trio. Playing in ensemble is an essential part of the music education, along with the fun that this activity gives you, it helps you understand better your instrument. With the ensemble pieces provided in this course you get a first hand experience of two or three melodies that are played simultaneously. You have a chance to experience yourself different layers of the music texture. You see and follow the other part or parts wile playing yours. This itself, is of a great value when it comes to playing classical guitar music as the guitar is a multi - voice instrument.
Practice sessions - with me, which will help you learn better and don't feel lonely while practicing. once you have learned your part, we will be practicing ensemble pieces together.

I present them to you with separate technical exercises extracted from the pieces themselves. Those exercises will help you to play the actual pieces effortlessly.
