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.

Background

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.
