The Pre-Professional track is ideal for classical guitar students ages 15 – 18 who are considering pursuing a degree in music studies, or for whom the study of classical guitar is a serious avocation.
Students in this track will have the opportunity for master classes, private lessons with SGI faculty, and ensemble opportunities. Students must provide a playing sample as part of their registration, have 1 or 2 polished solo pieces prepared for lessons and master classes, and prepare their ensemble music parts in advance of the festival to begin rehearsals.
