More than just a note-speller, this work has exercises in which the student writes either the note-name, the note (on the staff) or the note location on the fingerboard through first position. In addition, the second half of the book has dozens of games, puzzles, word search, mazes (and more) that teach the student names of dynamics, articulation, tone color, parts of the guitar, effects on the guitar and note rhythms. This is the most innovative and enjoyable note-speller ever written to reinforce learning along side any beginner's guitar method!

Anthony is the only US-born guitarist to win First Prize at the International Toscanini Competition (Italy). In 2010, he accepted a professorship to launch the first classical guitar program at the University of Missouri-Columbia (undergraduate through graduate programs). With highly acclaimed concerts at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Vienna International Center and the leading halls and festivals, Anthony holds nine diplomas from seven countries, including studies at New England Conservatory (US), Konservatorium der Stadt (Vienna) and diplomas in historical performance practice from Accademia L Ottocento, and ARCUM (Italy), et al. Anthony also earned language diplomas in both French and German at the Universitť Catholique (France) and the Universitšt-Wien (Vienna, Austria). He is the only guitarist ever awarded the Missouri Arts Council s Individual Artist of the Year and is the recipient of numerous awards for composition throughout Europe. He is also the only non-French elected to Domaine Musique, an organization that facilitates negotiations between French composers and film directors. Some of Anthony s feature film music credits include Rembrandt et le retour du fils prodigue (Paris, France), Georgina Herrera (Havana, Cuba), Nocturnes (Lille, France). Anthony s concerts often include traditional repertoire and original compositions contrasted with 19th-Century works performed on his priceless 1828 Staufer guitar. His concert and recording work with the contemporary prog rock group, The Nova Project, feature his original compositions with Jason Riley (electric guitar), James Kew (6-string electric cello) and Nick Baker (percussion). Guest artists with The Nova Project have included famed Dutch rock legend, Jan Akkerman (former lead guitarist for Focus), Kevin Gallagher (classical guitarist), and Ken Sugita (violinist, French National Orchestra-Lille). Author / editor of over 80 books and editions, Anthony s original compositions have been premiered in New York, Chicago, Vienna (Austria), Rome (Italy), Lille (France), etc. In 2012, he and duo partner, violinist Ken Sugita (The Sugita / Glise Duo), celebrated the 30th anniversary of their first concert at Lincoln Center and launched a 5-year tour (titled 30 Years After... ) of concerts in cities where they have performed since their New York debut. Anthony s most recent book, I Speak, is co-authored with famed US photographer (and student of Ansel Adams), Megan Wyeth. That publication includes dozens of Megan s art prints of rare guitars from Anthony s collection and surrealistic interviews with the guitars (written by Anthony). The world premiere opening of the gallery exhibition, I Speak, was in Chartres, France and is slated for showing in select cities in the US and Europe through 2017 (visit: I Speak on Facebook). Anthony s nine CDs and DVDs include, Overview, hailed as one of the Top-5 Classical Releases by Vienna Life Magazine alongside Leonard Bernstein and Murray Perahia. His non-musical activities include fencing (Anthony is a former university fencing coach), fly fishing, sailing (inland and offshore - first solo run at age 8), and cooking (specializing in Northern French cuisine). He is also an ordained protestant minister and licensed medical EMT. Anthony directs the St. Joseph International Guitar Festival (US), Six Strings and the Spirit (Chartres, France) and the MidWest GuitarFest at the University of Missouri-Columbia. When not on tour, Anthony lives part time in the US and part time in a small village in Northern France.Review:
Glise s playing is strikingly individual and blends an unbelievable dynamic range and ravishing tonal colors. Seldom have I been so impressed. --Vienna Life Magazine (Vienna, Austria)
Anthony Glise offers us a totally different rhétorique than we normally hear; his is a language of delicate effects, pure sensitivity, and contemplative emotions. The playing and sonority of Glise is not only clear and varied: it s a highly individual and spirited voyage. His style is not only that of power and decisive virtuosity: Glise seduces us by the grace and emotional intelligence of the phrase. --Le Diapason (Paris, France)
...Glise has produced (re-discovered?) a radically different way of playing the guitar. His constantly evolving articulation makes every phrase a revelation. His fastidious attention to phrasing creates a chiaroscuro effect that I have only heard from the very best pianists or lute players. ...a revelation, and should be heard by any guitarist who wishes to play expressively . --The Soundboard
