Children and young people also have the opportunity to take part in the Koblenz International Guitar Festival & Academy. Along with other like-minded young guitarists they can experience the unique atmosphere of the festival, at the same time as developing their skills and abilities.
The Junior Academy takes place from Friday 7 June until Pentecost Monday 10 June 2018. The centre point of the academy are the rehearsals and making music together in a large ensemble. Under the guidance of experienced guitar teachers from Germany, Great Britain, America and Switzerland, the young guitarists will prepare Baroque and Modern ensemble works. These will be performed at the Pentecost Mass, on Sunday 20 May, and the Prize-winners Concert, on Monday 21 May, to a large international audience.
Furthermore, Junior Academy participants will attend concerts by the many world-class performers at the festival. They also have the opportunity to receive one-to-one tuition or lessons in small groups.
The starting age for the Junior Academy is around 8 years old. When needed the youngest guitarists will receive arrangements of the music related to their current playing ability. After consultation with the participant, (and also gladly with their teacher) the music will be sent in good time by post. At the end of the festival, all participants will receive a certificate of participation.
The course fee for the Junior Academy is 200 Euros and includes a concert-pass for the participant and an accompanying person for all concerts and events at the festival.
Since its beginning 15 years ago, the Junior Academy has also been used by guitar teachers as an advanced training course. Interested teachers can register as a passive participant (150 Euros), which also includes entrance to all concerts and events, and a certificate.
