July 27-29, 2012
In this intensive three-day workshop, intermediate guitar students will have an opportunity to work on three compositions by guitarist/composer Leo Kottke. Archival video, enhanced computer capabilities, and specifically designed pedagogical materials will enable participants to study these pieces in depth.
This class also includes multimedia lecture/presentations on the background, career, compositions, and technique of Leo Kottke, featuring rare archival video of Leo Kottke discussing composition, performance, and a life devoted to music.
This year, the Music of Leo Kottke summer workshop will present “Standing in My Shoes,” “My Aunt Francis,” and “Agile N.”
Students should have at least some intermediate facility on the guitar and be able to read tablature. I will teach this class with the assistance of Benjamin Kammin, Andrew Lardner, and Josh Lane, who bring specialized background and depth to this workshop. Maximum enrollment: 45.
