Directed by Hernán Nuñez & Horacio Pozzo

This six week At-A-Distance Course is recommended for experienced Crafties as well as those recently introduced to this work, who wish to prepare for the Projects planned for 2017, as well as simply stay connected and work with others in an environment that supports their Personal Practice.

The central theme for this Course is ‘Deepening Our Practice’. This is a point of focus chosen to meet the needs of experienced Crafties worldwide at this particular moment in time, but it also offers a point of entry for Beginners into work with Quality.

An act of quality carries intention, commitment and presence, and is never accidental.

Further repertoire pieces planned for upcoming Performance Projects will also be introduced.

Our work together will also be supported by Themes Work, presented by Dr Mike Grenfell. Themes are a way to connect the guitar work with our everyday lives, and this is open to all participants on the Course.

George informs about his AT Presentations:

“A key aspect of the Alexander Technique is learning to think in activity. We will explore this in the activity of playing guitar by asking ourselves a central question ‘what needs to happen?’ and using visualization to refine our playing skills.”

A requirement for participation is having attended at least one Guitar Craft and/or Guitar Circle Course and having taken the principles presented seriously.

In order to participate, an Application Letter is requested:
