[prMac.com] Glendale, Arizona - More than just basic classical guitar instruction, this app provides a celebration of Bach's life with the help from the Bach Museum in Leipzig, Germany. It opens with a music box effect and allows you to enjoy an interactive look at the history of Bach's life and his contributions to music while you enjoy listening to the guitar pieces you will later learn.
The included guitar instruction is a visual guide to playing four of Bach's most popular pieces:
* Bourree in E Minor
* Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring
* Air on the G String
* Minuet in G
The app includes a FULL 60 Minutes of educational video. There are three 20-minute instruction videos by Danny Gill, featuring both the right and left hand positions. Mr. Gill was a teacher at the Music Institute of Hollywood for 13 years and is the author of more than 30 guitar education books/DVDs.
This app is sure to be enjoyed by classical music and guitar enthusiasts alike. Originally this item was produced with a book and DVD priced at more then $20. The app with many added features sells for only $4.99. A true bargain considering all the added features and interactivity that this app offers.
