The annual Classical Guitar Corner Summer School will be held from June 11th through June 17th 2023.
The first evening (the 11th) will start with afternoon check-in, dinner, and an opening concert. The final morning (the 17th) will conclude with breakfast and a group meeting.
The summer school will be held at Endicott College in Beverly MA. Endicott is a picturesque liberal arts college in the town of Beverly. Beverly Massachusetts 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 guitarists 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 five 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.
Who is it for?
The summer school is specifically focused on the classical guitar, its techniques, and repertoire. It is recommended that you have at least a Grade 2 ability with reading and performance (approximately grade 2 for AMEB/ABRSM/Royal Conservaroire). You will be participating in ensemble groups that match your level of experience and also a large ensemble, so the ability to read standard notation at a basic level is a must. Apart from these requirements, we welcome all interested guitarists to take part in what will be an educational and enjoyable experience.
*Please note that all participants must be over the age of 21 by June 2023, this is due to our liability coverage.
Participants will be staying on campus at Endicott College close to the Arts facilities, dining hall, and rehearsal rooms. Rooms are available as private rooms with a private bathroom or shared rooms with a private bathroom. All rooms have air conditioning, wi-fi and are in a new building.
The price of accommodation includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, starting from Dinner on the 11th until breakfast on the 17th. The meals at Endicott are quite exceptional with a large modern dining hall, and a variety of meal stations to choose from.
Please inform us if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Meal times and evenings are great times to socialize with your fellow guitarists. Picnics, playing pool, talking over a glass of wine, and discussing ideas over a meal all provide a great way to make friends and have fun.
All participants are welcome to perform a piece in our student concert. You will never find a more supportive and appreciative audience!
