The Aspen Classical Guitar Program is an intensive four-week program that offers performance class instruction with Director Sharon Isbin and her assistant concentrating on technique, sound production, interpretation of all repertoire, and Baroque performance practices. Advanced students will receive all of their performance class lessons from Ms. Isbin; others may have one or more of their lessons with her assistant. Placement will be determined on an individual basis. Qualified students enjoy many opportunities for performance, including chamber music collaborations. The program culminates with a class concert. Students also have the opportunity to participate in chamber music and guitar ensemble, coached by Ms. Isbin's assistant.
