On this day in 1985, Guitar Craft’s First Course began.
RF describes his work as Founder of Guitar Craft and the Guitar Circle as his 'proper work in life’.
Since 1985, Guitar Craft has presented, to more than 3000 people on four continents, opportunities to develop facility on the guitar, musicality and personal presence, mainly within a context of playing with others. Current courses are also welcoming auditors, who seek to develop their listening practice and are not primarily interested in the guitar: https://robertfrippsguitarcircle.com/
Guitar Craft is a way of developing a personal discipline, by developing a relationship with the guitar, with music, and with ourselves.
The Guitar Circle is a way of developing a personal discipline through working with others.
The Orchestra Of Crafty Guitarists is the latest public performance manifestation of Guitar Circle work, with sometimes one hundred or more guitarists, in movement.
The Guitar Craft current continues to move within the Guitar Circle.
