Aaron Shearer

September 6, 1919 April 21, 2008
    It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of  Dr. Aaron Shearer on Monday April 21, 2008. He will be greatly missed. Aaron Shearer was one of the most widely recognized and respected classical guitar teachers in America as well as a former student of
Andres Segovia. He was director of the guitar program at Peabody Conservatory of Music and The North Carolina School of The Arts.

    He was adjunct professor of classical guitar at Duquesne University. Mr. Shearer had lectured throughout the United States and Canada and he had received numerous citations for his contributions to guitar pedagogy. Mr. Shearer also became the first classical guitar teacher to be cited for exceptional leadership and merit by the American String Teachers Association and received an Honorary Doctorate from Duquesne University.

Aaron Shearer - Classic Guitar Technique: Vol 1 - Book and Online Audio
Aaron Shearer's Classic Guitar Technique has long been the core method used by generations of classic guitarists. Alfred Music is proud to present the third edition, and first major revision, of Volume 1 of this benchmark work. Completely re-edited and updated in collaboration with Thomas Kikta (one of Aaron's former students and the head of Duquesne University's Classic Guitar Department), the third edition maintains the character and appeal of the original book while providing new critical insights into core techniques that had not been addressed in previous editions. Also, for the first time, companion online audio recordings are included with the book, providing demonstrations, play-along tracks, and duet opportunities to ensure students correctly emulate the tone and feel of the music.

Aaron Shearer - Classic Guitar Technique: Vol 2 - Book
Volume 1 of Classic Guitar Technique presented a systematic approach for gradual musical and technical development toward mastery of this noble instrument. No effort has been spared in study, research, and experiment to continue the same approach in Volume 2. The full value of these works will be grasped only by those students who are willing to contribute a similar effort on their own part, both in a sympathetic approach to the contents of the books, and a constant evaluation of personal problems which a text by its very nature is unable to consider. This text should be used with its supplements to coordinate a program of study that will comply with the requirements of the individual student.
