In these strange and uncertain times, a reasonable person might despair. But Hope is unreasonable; and where there is Music, there is Hope.  

Can Music change our world? If so, how? What do we have to do to welcome music into our lives?

If Music is to visit, to enter in, listening is as necessary as playing and performing. So, the role of the audient is as necessary as that of the musician.

Guitar Circle activities and events welcome both guitarists and audients new to the work of the Guitar Circle & Guitar Craft, at any level of experience.

One of the privileges and quiet joys of being a working player, going out into the world, is that people, even those we have never met in person, are part of our wider family; all of us having all been touched and brought together by the power which is at the heart of music: Love.

Where do we begin? Right here, right now!

The art of craft is universal. The artful craft of Guitar Craft is also specific. 

Guitar Craft is a way of developing a relationship with the guitar, with music, and with ourselves. Guitar Craft techniques and exercises provide the basis for an efficient guitar technique, leaving our attention more freely available – to what end? What is the impulse of the essential Guitar Craft, Guitar Craft’s unspoken and deeper aim? 

It is to awaken and activate Conscience.

Historically, Guitar Craft has provided specific contexts, practical situations, and challenges to support this deeper aim. So, we might also say that Guitar Craft is a way of awakening Conscience by developing a relationship with the guitar, with music, and with ourselves. The experience in Guitar Craft has shown us that the primary form of working with each other, perhaps the most powerful, is in the Guitar Circle.

The Guitar Circle is a way of working with others, this is our practice. We also rock out!
