Classical Guitar Workshop

A tradition four decades in the making

This workshop will not be offered Summer 2017 due to CCM performance space availability during renovations. Stay in touch with this website for future plans, and keep up your playing!

We continue our annual intensive seven-day workshop for classical guitar enthusiasts of all levels. Participation in master classes and ensembles is organized according to individual skill levels (beginning, intermediate or advanced). Participants can find their comfort level. This workshop offers special sessions in topics like recital preparation, specific guitar composers, period styles, early music instruments, guitar construction and more.

Each evening, there is a concert, beginning with Sunday night's Faculty Ensemble Recital and concluding with a Guitar Orchestra piece on Friday and the Participants Recital on Saturday.

Established players and teachers from neighboring schools are part of the coaching staff. The workshop is a rich environment of players of all levels from all geographical locations: age 10 through retirement, junior-high school through college and graduate school, young professionals in music and other fields, retirees and more. The common denominator is a love for the classical guitar.

Application submission CDs:
Advanced applicants for the workshop should send a 15-minute CD by Friday, June 24, 2016.

Other applicants should file an application by Friday, July 1, 2016.
Workshop details will be sent out by return mail.
