We all know that practicing technique on the classical guitar is an important and necessary step to improving our playing. However, with the multitude of modern day distractions it can sometimes be quite a challenge to conduct a structured and comprehensive practice session. For that very reason I have created these five technical routines to help improve the quality of our practice sessions.
Each routine lasts between 15 – 20 minutes and they are arranged so that when studied between Monday and Friday each week you will have completed a comprehensive and productive set of technical studies. The routines are set out so that you can simply set the metronome to an appropriate speed and then get your daily technical work done. By incorporating these routines into your practice session you can feel good about working on a variety of techniques and also know that you have warmed up your hands safely for the rest of the practice session.
I recently ordered your 5 Technical Routines for Classical Guitar, and wanted to let you know how impressed I am with it. I have many classical guitar books with technical exercises in them, but yours are absolutely the best I’ve ever seen anywhere! In fact I was in the process of creating my own daily practice exercises when I ran across yours. Yours are much more thorough and detailed than mine. Thank you for saving me so much time.
Meet your teacher, Dr. Simon Powis
I am a guitarist just like you and I am excited to share my knowledge and experience. I was awarded a doctorate from Yale University, performed in Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, taught in international universities and masterclasses and I maintain an active performance career. I say this only to convey that I have passion for both performance and education and through this site I have been privileged to help hundreds of guitarists like you to improve their playing.
