The Summer Guitar Intensive is a one-week program that provides guitarists of all abilities the opportunity to study with a world-class faculty at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University.  The Summer Guitar Intensive is open to guitarists from 9 years of age to adult and is designed to support the beginning guitarist, Adult Guitarists of all ages and abilities, and the most serious/advanced young pre-professional/professional guitarists in training. The primary focus of this program is on classical guitar.

Young Guitarist Track (ages 9-13)

Pre-Professional/Professional Track (ages 14 and up)

This week is focused on the classical guitar, its techniques and repertoire. It is recommended that you have at least at least one year of private study/experience with notation and have 2-3 solo pieces prepared for master class coaching.

How it Works

Participants will be assigned to a faculty member for their homeroom/morning warm up for the week.  Each guitarist will have the opportunity to perform for every faculty member over the course of the week during the second workshop/master class at 10:30 am offered each morning.  In addition to solo guitar studies, each participant will be placed in an ensemble as well as perform in the Summer Intensive Guitar Orchestra.

Designed to educate the total musician, the curriculum combines a focused study of solo repertoire with the opportunity to explore parallel disciplines, perform side-by-side with faculty in the Guitar Orchestra, and attend evening concerts by faculty artists. Each day also features an Enrichment Class on topics ranging from the Basics of Recording to Musician’s Wellness. The week culminates with a recital of solo performances by participants as well as the Guitar Orchestra.
