Guitar Workshop with Gerald Garcia

(From BGS Executive Member Trevor Pike )

Summer Music at Dunford House, Guitar Work shop with Gerald Garcia.

Midhurst West Sussex
GU29 0DG Tel 01730 812381

The course will be run by Gerald Garcia who has taught at numerous Summer schools in the UK, Europe and the USA. He is a regular visitor to the Iserlohn Summer School in Germany. His teaching activities also include work with the English National Opera, Kent Opera, Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and conducting and teaching the teenagers in the National Youth Guitar Orchestra.
The course will concentrate on playing as a member of an ensemble. Parts will be of varying difficulties. You don’t have to be a very high standard provided you can read music, as Gerald will give you a part that suits your ability. He will also send out the music via email if you
are on line, if not I will try to send it out by post. The work and practice will be towards giving a performance on Sunday afternoon to an audience, made up of the singers from the other group who share the week end with us.
The course begins after dinner on Friday evening and ends on Sunday around 3.30pm. You will need to bring a music stand, and foot stand.

On Saturday there is a short period from lunch until 4pm when you can do what ever you like, some people go for a walk, practise or go into Midhurst. In the evening there will be an informal concert combined with the singing group, so you may like to play a piece of music, sing or recite a poem.

*Payment for Gerald’s tuition of £20 will be collected in cash at the Venue**
