Masterclass M° Fabio

Teacher: Maestro Daniele Fabio

The masterclass includes four meetings, lasting two hours each, held by the guitarist and composer Daniele Fabio, during which compositional techniques of different genres and fields will be learned to be applied to writing for solo guitar, exploring approaches to the instrument and transversal instrumental techniques. Each student will also be accompanied by the teacher in writing a piece for solo guitar of his own composition, putting into practice the knowledge and techniques acquired during the course.

A path suitable not only to introduce guitar composition, but also to implement interpretative skills by improving analytical and instrumental skills, and to be able to autonomously produce original transcriptions, arrangements and rewritings for guitar. Each student will be accompanied by the teacher in writing a compositional project to be developed, or a transcription to which to apply this knowledge. Each student will also have the opportunity to meet with the teacher even after the masterclass, receiving further feedback and advice on how to proceed with their project.
