Strumming from A to Z ... A Guitar Intensive at The Gardner Farm Inn
Strumming from A to Z  ... A Guitar Intensive

Friday evening, Nov. 17th thru Sunday morning Nov. 19th (2017)

Do you have a passion for the guitar or charango, cuatro, ukulele, or similar instrument you pluck or strum? And you want to learn and "talk shop" with others who share this musical passion?

The Guitar Intensive weekend at the Gardener Farm Inn is designed to bring such spirited folks together to explore South American and Flamenco strumming (and more) in a friendly atmosphere for learning and socializing. With social gatherings, demonstrations, master led discussion, individual instruction, performance opportunities, and a musical soirée complete with South American/Spanish food and wines.

Regardless of your proficiency level, join our Master Artists for a weekend of:

   * musical jams

   * discussions and demonstrations

   * one-on-one instructional sessions

   * opportunities to play and learn

The Master Artists leading the weekend activities are guitarist Scott Hill and charango player Carlos Boltes of the Alturas Duo, whose focus is the South American folk and oral tradition as well as contemporary classical, and Maria Zemantauski, acclaimed nylon-string guitarist and composer whose style is heavily influenced by Spanish classical and flamenco music and dance.

You can stay as a weekend guest or participate as a day "student."

Please contact John Hughes at the Gardner Farm Inn to reserve your room(s) for the weekend. He will provide you with the password to register for the Guitar Intensive.
