The Peabody Summer Guitar Intensive is an opportunity for young guitarists (ages 9 – 12) to explore their interest in classical guitar through a week of workshops with world class guitar faculty, have the opportunity to perform solo pieces in unique spaces and develop their musicianship in a fun, supportive and inclusive environment.

Young Guitarists will be participating in ensembles with their peers as well as playing in the SGI Guitar Orchestra with all other tracks. The ability to read standard notation at a basic level (all six strings in first position) and experience playing on a nylon string classical guitar is prerequisite. All interested classical guitarists who meet these requirements are invited to take part in what will be an educational and enjoyable program.
