Performing

Christopher Berg’s experience performing early music on lutes and guitars has afforded him a unique perspective when performing the standard classical guitar repertoire. He also believes each artist has a responsibility to create something that never existed before.

Teaching

Although Christopher Berg’s teaching is systematic, he teaches each student rather than a system. His pedagogy unites critical thinking and problem-solving skills with refined artistic sensitivity. Read more about his approach to teaching here.

Recordings

The Pilgrim Forest is a musical novel, a wordless story told in music of a traveller who has strayed from the main road in search of truth. Although conceived as an hour-long cycle, each piece also stands alone.

Resources

Here you will find free downloads of scores in the public domain edited by Christopher Berg, teaching handouts, and selected writings. Some are available as PDFs, ePub, and mobi files.

Books

Mastering Guitar Technique is packed with information about what constitutes good positioning and movement and how best to cultivate these. Giuliani Revisited re-imagines Giuliani's famous 120 right-hand exercises. The Classical Guitar Companion is an anthology of essays and study pieces unprecedented in its organization.
