Thanks again everyone. I ended up learning 5 of the pieces really well and it was really tough to chose which to play for this.
Here is a video of me playing the other two. (Brian Boru’s March and the Bach Largo) I have a little fun here and put a nice impulse response of a chapel in Europe on the track for reverb.…[Read more]
Thanks everyone for the kind words. The grades definitely keep getting more fun. I taking some time to “sharpen my axe” before I start wood shedding for grade 5.
To answer your question Judy, I agree that it seems each grade has a wider gap. I think the CGCA team has designed it to be this way though. I think the pacing is steady, but each grade…[Read more]
For the first time since I joined CGCA, I can say that nervousness and performance anxiety hasn’t really felt like a challenge with this submission. That is completely due to my being active in coaching calls. I didn’t even realize I had access to them! I actually e-mailed Dave earlier this year to find out how I could take part in them and he…[Read more]

Welcome Maria! It can be tough to learn without a teacher, but the curriculum here is great. It flows naturally. Every grade I find myself playing pieces I didn’t think I could play before.
Of course we are all here to learn with you and encourage you.
Thanks Mark, Donna, and Richard.
I like that idea Donna! Definitely going to use it.
Yes, Richard. I got the GuitarLift back in July and love it. I have used a Gitano, Tappert, Sageworks, and now this. I was wary to believe all of the “hype”. The Sageworks is a great support in so many ways, but the GuitarLift just feels much more comfortable for me.
Thank you so much for all of the time you have put in helping us all here. You are an amazing guitarist and teacher. I feel very lucky to have been able to learn from you during coaching calls.
Thanks Julie, Michael, Nick, and Magdalena. I think it’s good to have goal songs outside of what we learn in the grades.
Magdalena, I usually try to record it too. You know, just in case I play it perfectly. haha
Nick, she is an extremely good guitarist. It’s inspiring to watch her play.
