TU Dublin Guitar Weekend 26-28 March
Online Symposium
Tickets: €25 for 3 days.

‘The Classical Guitar as a Harmonic Instrument '

The three days dedicated to guitar teaching and performance on the theme ‘The Classical Guitar as a Harmonic Instrument '

The event will see the participation of renowned pedagogues and performers: Jonathan Leathwood, Matteo Mela, Evangelina Mascardi and TU Dublin guitar lecturer Marco Ramelli and TU Dublin doctoral researchers Andrea De Vitis, Stefano Moccetti, and Sasha Savaloni (visitor researcher for Royal Conservatoire of Scotland).

The event is thought to involve all students of TU Dublin with different activities. It will also be open to external participants (with a musical degree).

Philosophy of the meeting:
The weekend is conceived as a moment of exchange and interaction, exploring the implication of harmony in guitar interpretation and teaching.

The course will have different activities:

• Interactive masterclass: the invited teachers will teach students of various levels. After the lesson (30 min), the lecturers will interact with the other participants discussing on the themes that emerged during the lesson.

• Individual class: one-to-one lesson.

• Workshop and lecture: There will be two lectures and one seminar.
On Friday, the lecturers will give the participants a selection of readings and musical extracts to be read on Saturday. On Sunday the readings and the musical excerpts will be commented and discussed together.

• One day of self and peer learning: On Saturday, the participant will read and study the material given to them and create a peer discussion.

• Round tables: At the end, there will be a moment in which it will be possible to summarize and discuss all the central insight that emerged in the weekend.
