Just announced!

Introduction To The Guitar Circle & The Orchestra Of Crafty Guitarists with Robert Fripp.
April 27th – May 4th, 2025.
Villa Sancelso, Castione della Presolana, Italy.

Music has its own intelligence, but can music change the world? If so, how? 

How does music come into our lives? 

How does a musician become present in the place within themselves, where music lives and visits? 

If music is to enter our world, the role of the audience is as necessary as the role of the musician. How is an audient present within themself when music flies by? 

What is involved in the process of musical performance?

Guitar Craft and The Guitar Circle take a practical approach to these questions.  In addition to guitarists, we also invite those who have an interest in Music and whose musical instrument is their ears, to engage with the techniques and approaches available to Crafty Guitarists.
