l’ll be running a guitar workshop this year from 3rd October until 6th October on the beautiful town of Ullapool, Scotland.
The course is perfect for students who are currently working on my arrangements and who want to spend a few days away with fellow guitarists in a beautiful location working on their playing.
Click on the Guitarist’s Corner link to the left of this screen for more information.
Apart from my arrangements we will look at technique, harmony and musicianship amongst other things. If you come to the workshop and have something in mind you would like me to teach then let me know in advance and I’ll see if I can fit it in to the schedule.
I will host a club night every night where we can gather as a group and talk guitar and play our pieces to each other and jam.
On Friday 7th October the Ullapool Guitar Festival begins, click here for more information.
From Monday to Thursday the classes will run from 10:00 until 12:30 with a tea break and then again in the afternoon: from 14:30 until 17:00, again with a tea break in the middle to rest the fingers.
You can keep up to date with news about the workshop on the Facebook events page.
