2017 June: Advancing Beginners Acoustic Guitar Workshop

  • Hotel Le Terme, Bagno Vignoni (Siena), Tuscany, Italy Albergo Le Terme 53027 Italy (map)

JustinGuitar and TPW have been running guitar workshops in Italy since 2013, and every time we put together a group of dedicated guitar passionate players to share a week on the hills of Tuscany.


The Advancing Beginner Acoustic Workshop is aimed at students finishing the Beginner’s Course on my web site, who want to consolidate all that information and learn a bunch of new fun skills.
If you “kind of” play F chord and can strum ok but it needs work, you struggle to play songs all the way through and you’re not really sure what to do with scales then this course is for you!
But it’s not for complete beginners. Stage 7+ on my course should be fine.

It’s a FUN course but we have 4 hours of classes on 4 days and 2 hours on the final day,
followed by a group concert (voluntary – don’t worry!).
We’ll be exploring strumming, ear training, music theory, basic improvising and jamming, technique development and blues.

Partners are welcome to join you!! While you will be working hard with Justin, there are many activities to keep them busy.
The hotel, Le Terme, can help you in organising activities such as: guided tours; wine tasting; cooking school etc.
Or you can choose to just relax at the Hotel spa or simply grab a book and lay in the garden.

If you are into art: it is said that one-fifth of the artistic goods in the world are in Italy, and most of these in Tuscany, we are 40 minutes from Siena, 90 minutes from Florence, 30 minutes from Montepulciano and many other jewels of the Renaissance and middle age.

You should arrive at Hotel Le Terme  BETWEEN 4 AND 6 P.M. on the Sunday of the beginning of your workshop (June 4th)

This will give you time to check into your room, relax and be ready for the first meeting at 6 p.m. where you will meet your teacher and fellow students. In case you prefer to arrive a day earlier (Saturday) to explore the area or just chill-out before the workshop starts, just let us know so that we can reserve your room for that night also.

Departure is the following Saturday, after breakfast.

IMPORTANT:  When booking your flight, make sure that you will arrive at the chosen airport not too late during the day, whichever airport you plan to fly to, it will take you 2-3 hours to arrive to Bagno Vignoni, and we have the first meeting at 6 pm!
