Student Outreach Workshop + Breakfast
Saturday, April 20, 2024, from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
The Student Outreach Breakfast is a special, invitation-only event focused on adolescent through college-aged guitar students who are best described as serious students. Invitations to this educational event are extended through respected regional guitar instructors and related music professionals.
This two-hour Saturday morning workshop is scheduled for Saturday, April 20, 2024, from 9:00 AM – 11:00 during the Artisan Guitar Show. Guest speakers will present short talks on diverse and important topics. These speakers will provide information on the fundamental care and maintenance of an instrument, humidity control, sound reinforcement, music composition, and different playing techniques including fingerstyle and jazz.
Each student will be treated to a breakfast to begin the presentation. Each of the students will also be provided with show tickets to explore the guitars, concerts, and master classes after the Student Outreach Breakfast. They will also receive a gift bag.
One of the students will win a free guitar at the end of the class. We will select the winner with a raffle-type game of chance. There will obviously be no cost to the student for the chance to win the instrument or any other element of this event. We have selected the Furch Indigo Deluxe G-CY as an ideal alternate instrument for a guitar player. It is a wonderfully built acoustic guitar designed for musicians looking for a well-made, practical, and roadworthy instrument. Inherently versatile, it can produce a myriad of tonalities suitable for many music genres.
Furch Guitar Info
Violet Series guitars represent the essence of Furch’s sound philosophy. The excellent acoustic properties of the spruce soundboard are ensured by our proprietary voicing process. The back and sides are from African mahogany. The body of the instrument is treated with an open-pore finish, which enhances the natural sound and appearance of the quality materials.
