Teacher R&D Workshop

Teacher Research and Development Workshop 

at the

Summer Guitar Conservatory

June 18, 19 and 20, 2018

Registration is now open for the Teacher R&D Workshop at the 2018 Summer Guitar Conservatory.  

Guitar teachers of any age or experience may register.

Teachers should be familiar with classical guitar ensemble and able to read standard music notation.  

The Teacher R & D Workshop will be an opportunity for guitar teachers to meet together, play through ensemble repertoire, discuss and practice conducting techniques and to learn from each other.  Each teacher is asked to select an ensemble piece they are curious about investigating and we will email the score and parts to all teachers in advance.  The workshop will draw on experience from the GuitarCurriculum.com teacher training conferences, repertoire and teaching approaches, as well as from other sources.

Registration for the three classes is $60 (suggested donation).  

Please consider sponsoring a student to attend the day camp occurring concurrently with this workshop -  Sponsorship
