"What a fantastic opportunity - it's so rare to see a composition course specifically for classical guitar. It also really helps with theory and analysis of pieces. Anyone who takes part is so lucky to have access to this material at your fingertips. Brilliantly presented."
Shirley

Shirley

"I did not know what to expect and I was rather uncertain because my guitar skills are limited and did this course using my harp. I found Dan’s teaching was excellent and could be applied to just about any instrument. I have learnt a new skill and have had a great time."
John
