Richard Gilewitz Guitar and Ukulele Hands-on Classes

Thirty minute one-on-one sessions with fingerstyle wizard, Richard Gilewitz, available during the Mercury Music Festival.
During any of the sessions you’ll have opportunities for critique, comment and direction, plus you’ll be propelled into the next level and challenged to refine your techniques in order to release your hidden musicianship. The ability to have fun and laugh is required. Upon completing any of the sessions you’ll have the confidence to leap to the next step in your learning curve by using the material(s) to expand your skill level and repertoire. Printed exercises and pieces will be provided for study.
