Educational Programs – Academy




Registration deadline is June 8th, 2022. All fees are non-refundable.


The BGFest Academy program is designed for young guitarists (ages 15-30*) with a serious interest in classical guitar. It includes private lessons, masterclasses, workshops, technique and performance classes, ensemble opportunities, as well as an optional competition and an opportunity to perform in the participant recital in Jordan Hall at the end of our festival. We’re delighted to be back to a primarily in-person format in 2022 and we hope that you will join us in Boston at BGFest 2022!

*Younger participants may be admitted to the program by special request. Please contact for an audition before registration.


NOTE : BGFest 2022 fully expects to proceed as planned. In the unlikely event that unexpected circumstances should result in a return to an online format (as was the case in 2020), participants will participate in BGFest 2022 online.
