2017 Guitar Summit
Share |



Apply Now!


Application Deadline Extended to April 1, 2017


Hello Parents and Prospective Participants,

The GFA is embarking on a new youth oriented camp experience, GFA Guitar Summit, that will take place for the first time this coming summer at the GFA convention in Fullerton, CA.  This first cohort will get all of the benefits of the GFA convention including world-class concerts, masterclasses, lectures, vendor fair, and more. In addition, students will have opportunities to perform in ensembles and as soloists.  Perhaps the most exciting and unique part of the GFA Guitar Summit will be the personal interactions with great artists planned just for Guitar Summit participants.  Can you imagine eating lunch with one of your guitar heroes?

I believe this will be a life-changing experience that will be both informative and fun for all involved.  This year we are limiting participation to 30 students from the applicant pool.  We have assembled a great team of enthusiastic counselors and I know they can't wait to meet you.  Go and check out their introductory videos below. 

See you in June 2017,

Matthew Denman
Director of Education, Guitar Foundation of America
