GillaCamp Guitar Workshop - an all in one Guitar Camp, Guitar Retreat, Guitar Workshop, and Guitar Seminar - is a unique Guitar Music Experience that is fun, inspirational, and invigorating. From the 50 minute Power Sessions of the Traveling GillaCamp to the 10-hour, two-day guitar retreat held in various locations worldwide, the GillaCamp Guitar Workshop fits into your schedule. Hosted by veteran master teacher, composer, and fingerstyle guitar wizard Richard Gilewitz, GillaCamp Guitar Workshop is the player's answer to turning over common frustrations while increasing fingerstyle techniques, overcoming fears and insecurities, rekindling the passion for learning new guitar pieces, and rediscovering the joy of guitar! GillaCamp is designed for the beginner to advance player and for singers who play guitar for accompaniment.
The GillaCamp Guitar Workshop is structured into segments of individual topics. It is recommended that students attend as many sessions as possible in order to take advantage of the full workshop experience. The Traveling GillaCamp offers the opportunity for students to learn Richard's fingerstyle method as well as other techniques. This Traveling GillaCamp is the perfect time for beginners and intermediate players to sample how to increase their skills. During the 2- day GillaCamp Guitar Workshops, lunch and snacks are provided, there are extra sessions devoted to individual and group practice, time to relax and enjoy the local scene, and options for additional private instruction with Richard. Written exercises in tablature and standard notation are distributed for using during the guitar workshop and general discussion during the sessions is encouraged. The GillaCamp Guitar Workshop is stress-free even though a great deal of material will be covered in each session.
