Mastering the Guitar Class Method is a remarkably innovative new approach to teaching guitar in class settings. Special features of this method include: careful grading of all material; use of both standard notation and tablature; numerous guitar ensemble pieces; the combining of music with other disciplines such as history, math, English, etc.; presentation of varied musical styles as applied to the guitar; solo material from different musical periods; selections derived from various countries and cultures; graded lessons on improvising; and suggested guitar back-up and accompaniment styles. This new method meets current MENC national standards for music education.
