Musical theory while learning to play the classical guitar

“Playing the guitar without musical knowledge is like building a bridge without being a civil engineer”. That is one of the expressions that the students hear often from Carlos. If it is true that playing the guitar is for having fun and express feelings through the music, it is also necessary to understand how the music theory works together with the instrument. Therefore in the guitar lesson the students will learn not only how to play the guitar but also music theory, ear training, solfeo and music analysis.
