The classical guitar, whose origins date back to the years before Christ, was derived from the 15th and 16th century Spanish vihuela and Renaissance guitar, later transformed into the 17th and 18th century Baroque guitar and later into the modern classical guitar in the mid-19th century. The classical guitar is a type of stringed instrument that is played with the finger and the friction of the fingernail, resembling the shape of eight, with oval sides and frets on the stem. They usually have six wires and can be made from different types of wood. In addition to having many beautiful sounds, the guitar is preferred as an instrument that many people can easily access today. But the main thing is the music itself, instruments are tools. From this point of view, a much more detailed approach is needed in classical guitar training.
It is worth mentioning the benefits of playing this instrument as well as the tonal richness of the classical guitar and the pleasant emotions it creates in people. It is seen that many regions of the brain of the people who play an instrument work simultaneously. Especially, studies that will be carried out on an instrument that has both horizontal and vertical function such as the guitar will be very effective in terms of using the brain in multiple ways. Regular guitar practice will improve motor skills, right and left hand coordination. In this case, it will provide above average success in many subjects that require manual skill. At the same time, instrument studies in the developmental stage have a very important place in the development of psychomotor skills.
Since playing the guitar requires concentration, it silences thoughts, calms the mind, and helps us experience how we live the moment. The quality of the ability to focus during guitar practice is one of the most important elements that will enable us to quickly overcome new techniques and difficulties that may arise. When it comes to a complex instrument such as the guitar that incorporates many techniques, the importance of regular practice becomes even more important. It enables especially young children to gain the habit of regular study throughout their lives.
The process of learning music requires not only auditory skills but also mathematical thinking skills. This situation requires comparing and choosing between multiple positions and patterns during the deciphering of guitar music. This feature of the guitar can make music and harmony studies more intense and fun than in other instruments. Each new study will support analytical thinking by creating new connections.
Another feature of music is that it is a unifying tool in many activities that people do together. At the same time, music, which is our universal form of communication, allows us to socialize easily with people we do not know or even know their language, and to express ourselves in front of the community with the development of self-confidence
