The goal of this Composition is to encourage composers to create more classical guitar pieces and expand the repertoire for guitar.


Guest performers are all world-renowned guitarists featuring a wide variety of unique styles.


Open master classes provide an opportunity for them to share their musical ideas through face-to-face instructions, and showcase their diversified talents of interpreting the classical music through unique performing styles.
