Classical Guitar Masterclasses REDEFINED by Douglas Niedt

The OLD classical guitar masterclass approach:

  • Pay high tuition fees to study in a class in which you personally receive only a twenty or thirty-minute lesson per day or every other day.
  • Pay money to hear other students play.

The NEW Summer Guitar Study approach:

  • Pay a reasonable fee for a three-hour private lesson with Douglas Niedt each day.
  • No other students—You are the focus of his attention during your stay.
