10. FESTIVAL 8.-10.11.2019

International Guitar Academy Berlin
under the auspices of the Leo Kestenberg Music School,
Tempelhof-Schöneberg (LKMS), Berlin

The International Guitar Academy Berlin (IGAB) offers to guitarists of all ages and levels the opportunity to improve and cultivate their abilities and knowledge of their instrument. A wide ranging and flexible structure catering to all categories - Guitar Teachers, Students, University Graduates, dedicated amateurs, ambitious young pupils - enables participants to benefit from a comprehensive guitar orientated training programme at international top class level. Course timetables and schedules can be tailored to suit individual needs and all completed coursework can be officially accredited.

All courses are conducted by a quality team of university level teachers and international concert performers. Tuition is available in German, English, Spanish and French.

In addition to individual courses, IGAB also offers masterclasses, lectures and seminars on a regular basis under the direction of internationally acknowledged personalities who reflect and transmit the rich world of the classical guitar.

Membership of IGAB is open to Guitar Teachers, Students, University Graduates, interested amateurs etc.  Aspirants to university studies are subject to the guidelines of the SVA (Studienvorbereitende Ausbildung - higher education preparatory course) of the LKMS.


The Bologna Process with its overall introduction of Bachelor and Master Degree Programmes have brougbout circumstances which in the near future will greatly limit the availability of places for guitaristsinterested to pursue a Masters degree at Universities. As a result, educational programmes of a professional/semi-professional character will be on the increase as they are essential to cultural life in general. IGAB presents precisely such an initiative.

IGAB offers the possibility of refreshing and deepening their capabilities and knowledge on all aspects of the instrument to Guitar Teachers, Students, University Graduates, dedicated amateurs and ambitious young pupils.

After a limited time this training can be certified through a final recital. The certificate itself is not in concurrence to a Bachelor or Master Degree.
