Guitar teaching

Education and Outreach programs:

Education is a complex and gradual undertaking that defies oversimplification. It necessitates skilled teachers with both passion and patience to sow the seeds and nurture growth. However, educators are just one component of the entire equation; public awareness plays a crucial role in fostering the cultivation of arts and music.

If you have an appreciation for classical music, don't let it end here; it's essential to ensure that future generations continue to cherish these art forms. In today's society, the prevalence of apps offering instant gratification has contributed to shorter attention spans for many. Consequently, some find it challenging to grasp the complexity and depth of classical music, literature, and the arts. Instead, they may mistakenly perceive the 'chances' or randomness of chaos as the art form.

The outreach programs and lecture series mentioned below operate on a non-profit basis, meaning they do not generate revenue. However, they are not without costs, considering the time and effort invested in developing materials, as well as the organization and promotion of these initiatives. We are in need of support, whether financial or in other forms, to sustain these endeavors.

You can help us by:
1. Hosting the programs, and or,
2. Sponsoring the venue, and or,
3. Sharing this page to friends whom might like to help too.

Thank you very much.

Apart from grand opera houses and big concert halls, classical music often found its home in more intimate settings. As far back as the 19th century, composers like Franz Schubert, among other renowned Viennese composers, hosted small concerts that we now refer to as "Schubertiads." This tradition of intimate musical gatherings persisted into the era of Chopin, who crafted many piano solos specifically for performance in relaxed settings, giving rise to the term "salon music."

In the realm of guitar music, Francisco Tárrega carried on this tradition, with many of his compositions reflecting the salon-style approach. While South American guitar solos may not have originally fit within this genre, they are well-suited to today's salon-style performances. Nonetheless, I prefer to characterize them as evocative yet refined café guitar music, combining relaxation with refined taste.
