Guitarist Jason Vieaux launches an online Classical Guitar School on June 14, the first of its kind for the instrument. The school, in partnership with music and technology company ArtistWorks, allows students of all ages and abilities to take guitar lessons with Vieaux, regardless of their location.

Vieaux has recorded video lessons ranging from basic to advanced techniques, which can be viewed from multiple angles and in slow motion. Crucially students can also upload videos of their own playing, which Vieaux will respond to via video. These personal lessons can be viewed by all students subscribed to the site to create virtual masterclasses.

Founded in 2008, ArtistWorks Video Exchange Learning provides interactive music lessons from well-known musicians in styles ranging from rock guitar and jazz/fusion drums, to classical piano and banjo.

An adaptable performer, embracing a broad range of musical interests, Jason Vieaux has been head of the Guitar Department at the Cleveland Institute of Music since 2001, and inaugurated the Curtis Institute of Music Guitar Department with guitarist David Starobin in 2011. He has performed with more than 50 orchestras under such conductors as David Robertson, and has a recording contract with Azica Records. His latest album, a recording of Piazzolla’s music with bandoneónist Julien Labro, was released in 2011, and a new solo disc will arrive in 2013.
