The National Teacher Summit is a 3-day intensive workshop designed to prepare teachers who are new to the guitar classroom and to improve the playing and instruction of experienced guitar teachers. You will participate in a combination of technique, pedagogy, conducting and advocacy workshops with hands-on teaching and feedback. 

We’re so excited to welcome you to our new headquarters in central Austin for three days of inspiration, information, and fun! Check out the schedule below:
