Carl Fischer Music Announces the New and Improved
Carcassi Method for Classical Guitar
New York, NY — Premiered at Winter NAMM 2011 to great enthusiasm, Carl Fischer Music proudly announces a new edition of the legendary Carcassi guitar method for the modern-day classical guitarist, reworked and transformed by professional guitarist and teacher Philippe Bertaud, who was recently named “the new Lord of the String” by the Los Angeles Times. The Method for Classical Guitar (GT216 - $24.95) has been sensitively edited, retaining its original intent but also containing modern conventions in the instruction of classical guitar, rendering it not only relevant but invaluable for today’s classical guitar student. And for the first time, this edition also includes Carcassi’s famous 25 Melodious and Progressive Studies. To further aid the student, this new edition comes with an MP3 CD containing recordings of all 25 Melodious and Progressive Studies, beautifully performed by Bertaud himself. Our re-imagination of the truly classic guitar method will prove to be as indispensable to present-day guitar students as it was to its first pupils during the 19th century.

Carl Fischer Music has been a leader in providing quality educational and performance print music for more than a century.
