2020 dates 6/27 – 7/2. For those ages 21 and above interested in participating in Boston GuitarFest mainly to receive private lessons, attend concerts, and perform with the Boston Guitar Orchestra, the “Adult Education” program launched in 2019 may be a good fit.

Aimed at aficionados of the guitar, Adult Education is similar to the Institute program in a number of ways, but is slightly more casual.

Main Features of the Adult Education Program

  • Students will not be expected perform in Masterclasses
  • Students are invited to participate in the Boston Guitar Orchestra Concert
  • Three private lessons with skilled GFest faculty (one more lesson than the Institute program)


The 2020 Adult Education program schedule is published here.
