Fernando Sors peers considered him to be the best guitarist in the world, and his works for guitar have been widely played and reprinted since his death in 1839. Fernando Sors works for guitar ranges from pieces for advanced players, such as Variations on a Theme of Mozart, to beginner pieces such as the first few of his instructional book Méthode pour la guitar or Guitar Method. Eric Henderson was invited to Spain to become one of only three people to study privately with the master guitarist Andres Segovia. Henderson spent the next 4 years in Spain learning the intricacies of the classical guitar, while playing as much as 12 hours a day. In addition to Segovia, Henderson has studied guitar with Christopher Parkening, Angel Romero, Ernesto Bitetti, Emilio Pujol and Antonia Morales. He has studied Baroque interpretation with Ton Koopman and Henk Dekker, and theory and composition with Aureo Hererro. While Eric was in Spain he also had the honor of studying with the composer Federico Moreno Torroba, perfecting the interpretation of Torrobas Sonatina in A.
