The festival provides for players of all levels and ability, irrespective of age. The CDGF is renowned for the accessibility of its tutors and the informality of its learning environment. We have assembled for you an array of some of the top international performers of today and the cream of the crop in local talent. With their knowledge and experience they will help you discover and develop new skills over three days of truly intense guitar therapy. The sole purpose of our courses is to help you as an enthusiastic amateur or a committed professional to utilise your skills to their full potential. During your time at the City of Derry Guitar Festival you will meet and befriend a multitude of musicians and you will take away many valuable experiences from the course; but be sure of one thing, the knowledge that you will be exposed to, cannot be found in text books.
