Exploring the World of Classical Guitar Music

September 9, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

David Enstone

10:00 – noon, Thursdays

September 9 – 23 (3 weeks)

Classical guitar music has been the passion of instructor David Enstone for over fifty years and he would like to help you better appreciate and enjoy the wide world of the classical guitar. David will demonstrate some areas with his guitar, but mainly you will be listening to and reviewing a selection of pieces being played by some of the world’s top performers. We hope that this journey will give you new insights not only into the composers and performers themselves, but also the history of the instrument and some different techniques used to achieve particular sounds. No detailed knowledge of music is required!

We will also make a quick diversion into the flamenco guitar genre as it is so much fun and very complimentary to mainstream classical guitar pieces.

David Enstone was born in England in 1954 and first saw the Beatles in 1964 which led to him being given his first guitar for Christmas of that year. He quickly started to learn both modern and classical pieces and was lucky enough over the years to have heard musicians like Segovia and John Williams play some of the pieces that will be included in this class.
