Day of Guitar features Dr. Julie Goldberg, Assistant Professor of Guitar and Director of the Classical Guitar Ensemble at VanderCook College of Music.
This workshop will spark students’ enthusiasm for guitar and encourage them to strive to the next level of guitar performance. Instructors will pick-up tips on repertoire, running rehearsals, and playing techniques. Designed for classical, jazz, pop, and acoustic guitarists of all levels, from first year beginners to the technically advanced, Day of Guitar is a great opportunity for students to meet and make music with musicians from other schools. Students will rehearse and perform with the Day of Guitar Orchestra, receive coaching and instruction from many of Chicago’s finest guitar teachers, and be able to perform an ensemble or solo piece in the afternoon concert.
Day of Guitar will begin with registration at 9:00 a.m. and end by 2:15 p.m. Activities will also include the Guitar Orchestra rehearsal, and a performance featuring each school's ensemble and the Day of Guitar Orchestra. The guitar orchestra music is easy enough for beginners and includes challenging parts for the more advanced player. Instructors should practice and rehearse the music with their students before the event.
