Summer courses of the Guitar Institute are coming up soon – a five-day series of lessons, workshops and outdoor concerts in Brno cafés and clubs. This year's lecturers include Klára Hemplová, David Pšenčík and Gabriel Červeňák. During the courses, participants can choose among genres such as rock & heavy, jazz-blues, pop-folk (acoustic guitar), flamenco or classical music.
Summer courses are the culmination of the Summer Academy, which runs during the months of July and August. Many famous stars such as David Dorůžka, Zdeněk Bína, Milan Kašuba and Roman Pokorný have already appeared at the summer courses. The dramaturgy of the courses has been set up for five years already by the composer and founder of the Guitar Institute František Chaloupka: “Every year the courses have a different, unique atmosphere. However, some constants are valid – we are indefinite as regards genre, we deal with rock, jazz, metal or classical guitar, bass and other stringed plucked instruments, early and contemporary music, classical and electronic composition, etc. We aim to provide systematic guidance and training mainly in the genres of popular music (rock, jazz, folk, etc.), actively coach the students and develop their musicality. The lessons are open to all levels and ages from the age of six. ”
The Summer Courses of the Guitar Institute will be held for the fifth time at the Guitar Institute in Brno from 26 to 30 August.
