The Classical Guitar Program at NYSMF is an intensive two-week session providing intermediate and advanced guitarists the opportunity to develop their artistry with the NYSMF guitar faculty.
The goal of this program is performance, and students are guided in the practical application of material in every class in a positive, supportive environment.
Each class day includes a technique class complete with daily warm-up routine, advanced techniques and performance development, large and small ensemble collaborations, and explorations of style, repertoire and interpretation.
Students receive weekly private lessons with the instructor with an option for additional lessons, and all students have access to daily NYSMF classes in music theory, aural skills, music history, ample performance opportunities, and a variety of festival ensembles.
addition, NYSMF Classical Guitar Institute
students will have the opportunity to participate in the more
than 50 performing ensembles
and classes offered daily
in the regular NYSMF program.
cost of attending the NYSMF Classical Guitar
Institute is $250, in addition to all regular NYSMF tuition and fees.
