Unfortunately I won't be able to make it but wanted to make sure everyone knew about the Classical Guitar summer school being organised by Simon Powis at Endicott College in Beverly MA. Endicott is a picturesque liberal arts college in the town of Beverly. Beverly Massechusetts is located 16 Miles out from the city of Boston, and is located opposite the ocean on the scenic North Shore coastline.
The CGC Summer School will bring together dedicated amateur guitarist from around the country (and around the world!) to work on their technique, theory, musicianship, ensemble skills and general musical understanding. There will be five full days of group ensembles, individual lessons, workshops, large ensemble, musical analysis, and socializing with other guitarists.
There will be six main teachers as well as some special guests at the Summer School and being an intimate environment, you will be able to interact with them all on a regular basis.
Teachers for 2017 : Ben Verdery (Yale University) Gohar Vardanya, Raffaele and Janet Agostino, David Belcher, and Simon Powis.
One of the best things I ever did early in my playing was to go to a classical guitar summer school in Sydney Australia. The chance to be completely immersed in the guitar for 5 days is great. Personally I feel like my playing jumps a level every time I attend a summer school. Simon has been a regular instructor at the Sydney summer. He is a fantastic player and a great educator.
Simon has advertised the school to those on his classical guitar corner mailing list but not sure whether word has spread beyond that.
