My teaching schedule usually fills up a year in advance. This means that you must get on my calendar now if you want to come and build a guitar with me in 2020. However, I have had two last minute class openings come up this year due to cancellations. The openings are June 24 - 29 and July 28 - Aug 2. I do not anticipate any more openings coming available this year. So, if you want to come and build either a steel string or classical guitar with me this year now is the time. Please contact me if interested in either of these dates.
Also, once a year I offer a two day classical voicing class and a two day steel string voicing class. This is the Holy Grail of guitar building! In this class you will thickness, brace and voice a soundboard with me. This can then be taken to your shop and used as a reference for future soundboards or you can use it on a guitar. Learn about the optimum thickness for the species of wood you are using, what a loose or stiff top is, different radii and how they affect tone and structural integrity, bracing patterns, how to thickness soundboards with hand tools, how to select tonewood, and much much more!
I still have spots available for this year's classes. The steel string voicing class will be held June 14 - 15 and the classical voicing class will be held June 16 -17. This is a great way to shave years off the lutherie learning curve in just a couple of days.
