This course provides a fun and

comprehensive overview of everything from the basics of tuning, reading music,

and caring for your nails through detailed instruction on left and right hand technique, practice and performance tips, and insights into how to steadily improve

as you learn new material and

new techniques.

I especially liked the way Brandon helps you achieve the musical satisfaction of

playing beautiful excerpts from pieces like Asturias and Malagueña right away, while you're still working on mastering the

techniques needed to perform the rest of the piece. And having it all available online means you can go back and review material at your own pace whenever you'd like.

A great resource for anyone who wants to get started on learning to play

classical guitar!


Whether you are new to music and want to learn to play the guitar, or whether you are a seasoned musician (instrumentalist or

vocalist) and want to learn how to play the guitar, you will be excited with the results you acquire with Brandon Acker’s online guitar curriculum. The student will learn the fundamentals of music and the fundamental techniques of playing the guitar. 

Mr. Acker has developed a curriculum that is fun, exciting and offers opportunity for success at every turn. The price of the

curriculum makes it accessible to

everyone. I’m definitely looking forward to the next installment of Mr. Acker’s online guitar curriculum. 


This course covers fundamentals for

playing beautiful classical guitar music with Brandon's compelling and infectious

enthusiasm. For me, moving from tablature to standard music notation is a major benefit as it allows access to centuries of beautiful music.

Brandon's friendly, encouraging teaching style made learning easy and fun (especially music theory for me).

I was surprised at how quickly my guitar playing improved with the detailed lessons that built on each other as the course

progressed. It's clear that the course was

developed from Brandon's own learning

experiences and his work with many, many classical guitar students with

all levels of expertise.



I have no musical experience. Is this course going to be too difficult?

Not at all. This course starts at the very beginning (holding the guitar, tuning, plucking a string, etc.) and teaches you every step until you can play your first classical pieces!

All of the video lessons include a speed dial and I encourage students to slow the piece down if they are having difficulty keeping up or even pausing and practicing for fifteen minutes.

Will this course make me a "Pro" since that word is in the course title?

While this is a BEGINNER course, it is actually Volume #1 of a series of courses that I am currently working on. Volume #2 will be out shortly.

My goal is to eventually have enough course content online in this series (and perhaps supplemental mini-courses) to cover everything you'll need to know to play like a professional.

For what age range is this course intended?

This course is ideally designed for people aged 9 and up. There is no such thing as being too old to start enjoying the wonders of the classical guitar! Children under 9 can benefit from this course but I'd recommend having an adult view the course with them as a guide.

I already play electric guitar, is this the right course for me?

Absolutely. This is the course that will teach you how to easily read music in standard notation, shape your nails and play with good technique in only 6 hours. I myself transitioned from electric to classical guitar and I wish I could have had a course this in-depth and fun to guide me.

I don't have a classical guitar yet. Can I use my steel string guitar?

Yes. While I do think having a nylon-strung classical guitar is the best instrument for this music, yes you can take this course on a steel-string acoustic guitar or even an electric guitar.

What will I be able to play at the end?

Classical guitar favorites like Malagueña, Greensleeves, the opening theme from Asturias Leyenda, beautiful études by Carulli and Aguado, the melody of Romanza, a duet version of Bach's Bourée in E minor, and much more!

Will I get lifetime access to the course or do I have to watch it in a certain timeframe?

Yes, you get LIFETIME ACCESS and can view the course at your own pace.

What if I don't like the course?

If you take my course and you honestly feel it did not improve your classical guitar playing, there is a 14-day money-back guarantee. However, I put all of my knowledge gained from two degrees, thousands of lessons taught, and running an online music school into this course. I really think you'll like it!
Please note: This is a BEGINNER course designed to teach you introductory pieces, good technique, and how to read music.

Aren't one-on-one lessons better?

While I'm a big fan of one-on-one lessons, not everyone can afford them or have an hour a week to dedicate to in-person lessons. This course is designed for those who want to learn at their own pace and everything I teach in this course comes from the way I have taught thousands of lessons. Plus you will get personal feedback from me in our private Facebook group.

Lastly, you will get a 20% discount to sign-up for my online music school Arpeggiato where you can take one-on-one lessons with one of our teachers after you've finished this course.

What are the next steps after completing this course?

As soon as I'm able, I plan to release an intermediate and advanced course that serves as the perfect next step to this beginner course. In the meantime, when you buy this course you get 20% off one-on-one Zoom lessons at my online music school Arpeggiato.com. I'd recommend taking advantage of that and working with one of our expert teachers for direct feedback on what you've learned.

I'd also recommend an intermediate technique book like "Pumping Nylon" by Scott Tennant and an anthology of music to learn such as the Library of Easy Guitar Classics.
