Tuscany, Italy Guitar Workshop


 International Guitar Workshop in Tuscany 

Woody Mann & David Mastrangelo

Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy
July 5- 9 2017

Join us for the 9th annual Tuscany Acoustic Guitar Workshop in beautiful historic Arezzo, Italy. 
Participants come from all over the world to share the learning experience in a non- competitive community atmosphere. 



The site for our workshop is in the historic town of Arezzo, in the heart of Tuscany
 The program is designed for all levels of players and will cover a wide range of ideas and techniques and practical approaches for developing fingerstyle guitar playing. Some of the  topic covered will be basic and syncopated picking, understanding the logic of the fretboard, improvising within a tune, open tunings, preparing a tune for performance and ways to develop your own sound.  There will also be a special emphasis on performance approaches and playing in a group.  Woody and Davide will break down the complexities and teach new arrangements of folk, blues, gospel, ragtime, jazz, celtic and contemporary repertoire.  The relaxed and non-competitive atmosphere offers students a chance to perform in daily  “play and learn” sessions and focuses on each individuals musical needs.  In addition to the scheduled morning and afternoon sessions, there will be “de-constructed” jam sessions on learning to play in groups as well as special presentations from local luthiers. We look forward to sharing our music with you and look forward to welcoming everyone.  Please feel free to email  if you have any questions.  A presto, Woody and Davide



The site of the workshop is in the historic Center of Arezzo, Italy. Located in one of the most beautiful landmark buildings it is within walking distance to all museums, shops, museums, and the train station.
