Music Education & Conference
Guitar Workshop Plus
June 17-22 2018
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Designed for aspiring musicians of all ages including teenagers, adult hobbyists, students pursuing music careers, semi-professional and professional musicians, Guitar Workshop Plus offers attendees a unique setting for intense musical and personal growth. As well, this program allows for group development (entire bands will sometimes attend) and the family experience (father and son, mother and daughter, brothers and sisters, etc.). The program provides students with the opportunity to study multiple styles, courses, and levels with some of the industry’s leading musicians. Having enjoyed the experience of a lifetime, students leave each session with enough material to work on until the following year. The program’s administration has been organizing and directing summer music workshops across North America for sixteen years. Musicians of all ages and levels have been attending from across Canada, the U.S., Europe, South America, Asia, and Australia. Considered by many to be the premier summer music education program in North America, the program has been offering workshops in Toronto and Vancouver for many years and has now expanded to the San Diego area.
New this year, the San Diego session will be held at Point Loma Nazarene University (3900 Lomaland Dr., San Diego, CA 92106). The location is scenic with facilities which provide fantastic accommodations, modern classrooms, performance space, and exceptional dining facilities, all centrally located in San Diego.
Professional faculty and world-class guest artists teach and perform. 2018 guest artists include Albert Lee (Eric Clapton, The Everly Brothers, Emmy Lou Harris, Herbie Mann), guitarists Eric Gales (Elektra Records, sessions), Nita Strauss (Iron Maidens, Eric Clapton, The Everly Brothers ) Wayne Riker (2017 SDMA Lifetime Award Winner), Keith Greenwood (SLEDD), Tommy Collins, bassist John Simons, drummers Mike Atesalp and Gary Reed Johnson – and more.
