Master Class: François Pelletier
Creative Concepts: Writing for the Guitar
DATE: Sunday, August 12th, 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Guitar is a unique instrument, from how it is made to how it is played, and through what is being played, every detail of it is unique. As a popular instrument by nature, it has been played more often by ear than written down on paper. So how should we proceed to create a piece of music for guitar? Whether you write music or not, if you play the instrument, you can create something out of it. François Pelletier will go through different strategies to address the matter and demonstrate those ideas with musical examples performed live. From the initial ideas to organizing them to reaching the final result, the composer shares his thoughts and experiences. This masterclass is clearly for any creative guitar player, beginner to advanced, who is on a journey for instrumental inspiration.
