8 days masterclass and festival for guitar

Saturday, July 27 - Sunday, August, 04, 2019

What a magic place!

"What a magic place!" once said Luis Molina (Cuba). And because that's how it is, everyone is welcome - from beginners to professionals of all ages.

We live in a small but charming Landheim (dormitory) in a small village in northern Germany. An enchanting place in the middle of a small forest. Here you immediately relax, forget the rest of the world and enjoy a week of guitar with good friends like in a big family.
