Guitar and songs

with Steve Conte


Maestro Steve Conte

Status Expected in 2023

Steve Conte gives a masterclass week for guitarists and songwriters of all levels.Drawing on his invaluable experiences from around the world with many famous artists you will gain insights, tricks of the trade and a deeper understanding of how rock ‘n roll and its main carrier, the song and its main weapon, the guitar works for you.


Steve Conte takes you on a journey through essential rock ‘n roll history.

His energetic presence and vast knowledge are a true treasure, and this week gives you the chance to take a peek into his “library.”

Exercises in the art of writing and guitar playing, enhanced by Steve’s personality, guarantee you an unforgettable week!

In this challenging, yet achievable week, you will deepen your level of understanding of how songs work and how the guitar will work for you rather than the other way around. There will be a focus on the larger idea behind songs. How do you translate a big idea into a 3 to 4 minute song. Are there certain voicings that express your ideas? What is the relevance of a guitar solo and how do you start a good one? Steve’s approach is no nonsense and yet unique and as such loved by many.
