Mindfulness and Guitar Playing and Performance for the Amateur and the Professional

As we return to the stage or to playing for family and friends after this challenging year, mindfulness can help ease the transition and enhance both the quality of our playing and our enjoyment of practice and performance. In this hands-on session, we will practice and discuss mindfulness techniques for the classical guitarist.

The presentation will be followed by our Open Mic. Sign up in advance to play — see the Member Events page for details. NYCCGS Member Events are free and open to all members and first-time guests.
