With support from the North American Federation of Guitar Circles and visiting instructors.
Arrivals: July 7th before 4 pm. (July 6th is possible), prep team arrives July 5.
Departures: August 24th by noon.
This course is open to those who have an established sitting practice and have attended an Intermediate Beginner course.
We will work together for seven weeks focusing on approaching the work in the Circle as it comes in contact with different aspects of our daily life, as stated in the Introduction to Guitar Craft:
Can we apply the quality of our relationship with the guitar to the mundane activities of our life, like cleaning the bathroom and preparing food? So, Kitchen Craft and House Craft are part of this course. The longer courses are a way of practicing the life of the musician.
This will be an opportunity to work in greater depth with the exercises presented on shorter courses, i.e. the primaries, secondaries, circulations, repertoire, etc. There may be public performances. The sitting practice, as well as The Guitarist Inside will be addressed. We will be exploring what becomes possible when we work in a group, while providing a supportive environment for individual practice.
