Downtown Campus

The Summer Guitar Intensive is a five-day program that provides classical guitarists of all experience levels the opportunity to study with a world-class faculty at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University. The curriculum is designed to support serious classical guitar students ages 12 – adult. Registered students will be grouped according to appropriate track based on age. All registered students must submit a playing sample video (not to exceed 10 minutes) with two contrasting styles so the faculty can assess level for ensemble placement. To submit a playing sample, students use this link: Summer Guitar Intensive.

Applications are not complete until students are both registered through the ASAP registration system and playing samples are received.

How it Works

Designed to educate the total musician, the curriculum combines a focused study of solo repertoire with the opportunity to explore parallel disciplines, perform, and learn from the most important figures in the guitar world.

Upon registration, participants will be placed in a group based on age and experience level. Each group has a designated faculty member who will run the technique and warm up class for the week, and then throughout each day students will participate in lessons, master classes, ensemble rehearsals, and music enrichment studies. Students will participate in small ensembles as well as perform in the Summer Guitar Intensive Orchestra.
