Master Classes

What is a master class? Typically master classes use pre-chosen performers, each presents a piece and then receives a 30-minute lesson from the teacher in front of a live audience. Members of the audience can learn a lot. Our audience members attend for free.

CCGS presented a technique and master class with Gaëlle Solal. The video from the event is a valuable resource for taking any guitarist’s playing to the next level! The technique class includes topics ranging from healthy posture to reducing that pesky string squeak. The master class portion includes two players presenting pieces by Thelonious Monk and Astor Piazzolla. What a class!!!

We hope that you’ll also watch our master class with Jorge Caballero, presented by CCGS on November 12, 2016. The class was held at John Carroll University. The class featured four guitarists, playing classic works by Villa-Lobos, Torroba, Barrios, and Bach.
