The artists who perform the concerts during the Twents Gitaarfestival will also give guitarlessons. These are open to the public!
Before the lesson it is useful that you have rehearsed a piece in advance that you have mastered well, which you can play during the lesson and which you can work on together. Anyone, regardless of age or level, can participate. It would be nice if you take the sheet music with you to class.
Carlo Marchione, winner of seven major prizes at international competitions, has been part of the leading group of classical guitarists of the last 30 years. Carlo has performed as a solo guitarist, with orchestras and chamber music ensembles.
Nowadays he is a professor and regularly leads master classes at various European Conservatoires as well as being a regular guest at Festivals throughout Europe. For his outstanding contribution to the development of the guitar, in 2017 he has been awarded with one of the most prestigious international prizes for the didactic, the Golden Guitar.
“Whoever decides to participate in my master can count on an absolutely professional but not pedantic approach to the subject. My philosophy is to inspire the student to continue the work alone and, in order to do so, give him information that can be useful not only for the piece he presents in class, but for any other pieces he decides to to study. As Confucius would say: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to fish and you feed him for life.”
