We are delighted to announce our first Weekend Guitar Workshop! Join us for two days in the company of fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Will McNicol as he guides you through learning two pieces in contrasting styles, each offering up unique ideas and approaches to explore as a group.
The set pieces will be sent a couple of weeks in advance, as some prefer having a little look-through ahead of the workshops. However, there’s certainly no pressure to learn anything in advance.
The workshops are in a totally non-pressure environment, with areas being learnt and played through as a group. There will be no pressure to play solo in front of the group (but there will opportunity should you want to, in order to gain feedback on solo performance!).
Whilst the course is not designed for total beginners, it’s certainly open for a range of abilities. Around two years of playing experience is probably a good start, with a decent knowledge of acoustic guitar basics (common chord shapes, fingerstyle patterns etc).
Please find some feedback from attendees of Will's previous workshops below:
“For me, this was the best musical experience I had ever had”
- Martin, Student of Advanced Fingerstyle Course at London Guitar Summit
“As a result of his good planning, an excellent blend of musical tastes and considerable patience, the result was, appropriately, a complete tour de force from which all present derived considerable benefit and a sense of achievement” - Charles, Student of Brittany Guitar Workshops
“There are no words to describe the extent to which I enjoyed our workshops” - Jonathan, Student of Advanced Fingerstyle Course at London Guitar Summit
The course will run from 10am til 5pm on both days, with a social organised at The Narrowboat pub around the corner for the Saturday night.
