Guitar for Everyone!

After teaching for many years, the duo felt a need to write a new guitar method which, as well as being fun, contains many pieces which cover all techniques and basic skills needed to become competent on the guitar.

Their book, 'Guitar for Everyone!', takes students step by step through many pieces right from beginner through to intermediate level. The book contains mostly new repertoire composed by Duo Lenz.    Guitar for Everyone! Sample Pages
