Tampere Guitar Festival 4.-12.6.2016

Guitar Review


Guitar Review is a event for guitar students and teachers. The idea is to get together, to play, discuss and have fun with people alike and to develop skills and understanding of music. In the review there is a jury of 3 professionals:

• Petri Kumela
• Otto Tolonen
• Marc Papillon

They give feedback and practical tips to all participants playing at the Guitar Review. The best performances are avarded with a possibility to perform at Tampere Hall on Friday June 10th, right before the concert of Ricardo Gallén.

Detailed information is availble at the site in Finnish. Please contact us if you are interested in taking part into Guitar Review and need further assistanse due to language issues.
