  • Ashburn Guitar Studio

    (4 reviews)

    AGS (Ashburn Guitar Studio) offers quality instruction in the classical guitar: My students are usually referred by Loudoun County Public Schools' middle and high school guitar teachers and they receive four to five, 30-minute private classical guitar lessons each month for $30 per lesson. The classical technique requires students to play with nails (no plectrum) on a nylon-string guitar. The standard repertoire includes the music of notable composers such as Sor, Aguado, Carulli, Carcassi, Giuliani etc. Quarterly studio recitals are held that feature AGS students and local professionals.
