The theme for the 13th New York Guitar
Seminar at Mannes
in 2013 is BE A PLAYER: Exploring Entrepreneurship and Creating Performance Opportunities
In addition to offering five faculty
concerts, 100 master class lessons, and daily ensemble coachings by a faculty
of a dozen of the world’s top guitarists, the seminar will provide multiple
solo and ensemble performance opportunities for all participants, plus new,
innovative, hands-on workshops and discussions that will focus on elements of
career development, encouraging guitarists to
learn more about how to organize and oversee their own events, concerts,
recordings, videos, press materials and publicity, web sites, publishing,
teaching opportunities, community outreach presentations, and other topics.

feature of the seminar is always a great opportunity to meet and work with
interesting people from all over the world. It is incredible how quickly a new
piece can really come together with a bit of efficient rehearsal and some great
coaching. That’s the whole point—to sight-read, to learn music quickly, to get
really good at rehearsing, and to have new performance opportunities—all within
a few days.
As a full participant you will be part of one ensemble, with which you will
have three rehearsals/coachings, and perform in the final concert. The music for
the ensembles will be handed out on the first day of the seminar. You will be
able to chose the piece and ensemble and part you want to play. We lay out all
the ensembles and parts and participants get to sign up to whatever piece and
part they want. Thousands of classical guitar lovers, ranging in age from 8
to 82, have attended past New York Guitar Seminars at Mannes from six
continents, 50 countries, and nearly 40 states.
