Who can participate?

If you master some basic skills like chords, strumming, maybe a bit of fingerpicking and do have a solid basic knowledge of Guitar playing, you should do just fine. Whatever level of experience you have, we promise, that you will not be disappointed, there will be always plenty of challenges in further developing your skills.

The idea of this 1 week workshop is to give you some new fundamental, important "tools" to take home with you, so you will be able to improve on your techniques, composing, improvisation and get some inspiration to experiment with new approaches to percusive and Fingerstyle Guitar playing.

Our Teachers for 2019:


Acoustic guitarist Maneli Jamal has lived in five different countries (Iran, Belarus, Germany, USA, Canada) and moved twenty times by the time he was 18. The young artist gained a sense of musical maturity rarely seen among his peers especially when he transforms his nomadic life experiences into musical movements using extended guitar techniques. His rhythmic concepts can be alternately short and dense, or explored carefully through several movements and real life stories. This becomes evident with having won countless music competitions around the world including most recently placing 1st at Canada's Soundclash Music Awards. He has already performed in 5 continents and 16 countries as a solo performer, has a signature model acoustic guitar named after him and was on the front cover of 2015 Toronto magazine . The world is his home and he plays from one end to the other.


Emil was born in 1987 in Bengtsfors, Sweden. He started playing the guitar at the young age of 9. After finishing high school in Sweden, Emil moved to the United States to study music with an emphasis on guitar at the renowned Musicians Institute in Los Angeles. At MI, Emil got to study with many world class guitar instructors and performers like David Oakes, Carl Verheyen, Chas Grasamke, Jimmy Wyble, Jamie Findlay, Al Bonhomme and Allen Hinds. They were all great inspirations to him. In 2007, Emil was awarded the title of “Outstanding Player” at MI for his graduating class. Since then Emil has been continuously developing and working hard on his own style and music and has won many prizes and awards. Presently, Emil performs regularly either solo or with his wife, Zandra Ernebro and has appeard on TV several times, both as a solo-artist and also with different Swedish artists. To make a long story short: Fingerstyle, groove and rhythm as it's best...

Heiko had 8 years of piano lessons in his youth and is a self-taught fingerstyle guitarist since 13 years now. He has toured through Spain, France and Germany and never failed to leave his audience in awe. His very unique style and compositions take us on to a journey into the unknown ...
Heiko has been teaching guitar in a very unconventional but successfull way since many years and will be focussing on percussive techniques and how to incorporate these into a song, plus he will share his thoughts on fundamental things such as composing, ear-training, and "guitar-secrets".

Tana studied at the University of Mozarteum and Conservatorio superior de Salamanca focusing on classical and contemporary guitar and chamber music. He has performed in international music festivals in several countries such as Spain, Austria, Germany, Greece, Czech Republic and the United States. In 2011 he started his solo project with the acoustic guitar. 
Tana will teach techniques to improve the movement and control of your hands, especially when doing percussions and how to realize any rhythm coming naturally through your body to the guitar.
