YOUNG GUITARISTS PROGRAM

This facet of the program is specially designed for serious intermediate level guitarists (14 years old minimum). The student must demonstrate a marked interest for guitar and be autonomous in his or her individual practice. A minimum of three years training in classical guitar is required.

In addition to the activities of the regular program, guitarists enrolled in this facet will receive group technique classes and will perform in the guitar ensemble. Masterclass attendance is mandatory and depending on their interest and level, some of them could be asked to play in masterclasses. For pedagogical reasons, participation in masterclasses is reserved to advanced level students.
