Guitarists told to play from the heart

Students learning how to play classical guitar in one US school have been told to put their body and soul into their performances.

Music teacher Peter Wilson of Highwood School in Montana was quoted by the Great Falls Tribune as suggesting passion and expression should be at the core of any guitar playing.

"You need to play from your heart. Play it beautifully, play it expressively," he remarked.

He added that guitar playing is similar to stretching an elastic band, in that it starts off as a relatively easy exercise but becomes more difficult the further a person gets.

Mr Wilson made his comments as Christopher Parkening - one of America's top virtuoso classical guitarists, according to the LA Times and the Washington Post - visited the school to impart some of his own wisdom on the students.

"Success seeks to please men. Excellence, rather, seeks to please God," the professional musician said.
