Masterclass Week Playing Guitar with JB Meijers
11 August 2023 - 18 August 2023
Dutch, English, German
Maestro JB Meijers
Status It was an incredible week!
JB Meijers gives a “guitarcamp” for guitarists of all levels. Because of the partly individual character of this master class and the playing together in smaller groups, everyone, whether beginning or advanced, will come into his/her own. JB draws on his rich experience as a musical maestro in the international music world.
JB will provide each participant with his ‘tricks of the trade’ at a challenging but feasible level. Attention will be paid to technical exercises but also to the mindset and guitar philosophy.
Composing & performing
Another important aspect of this masterclass is composition: how do you string together loose ideas into an exciting musical whole? Learning to put together the pieces of information you have collected, stimulates every guitarist to think and feel musically on a deeper level.
Of course we will also pay attention to the performance, among other things during the campfire session; because no guitar camp without a campfire, tropical conditions or not!
It is recommended to bring your own guitar during this week, but there are also a (limited) number of loaner instruments available.
