How you can help:
Scholarships:With your help we plan on making the "Classical Minds" International Guitar Festival & Competition a great source for musical education in the greater Houston area. We are in need of scholarships which are awarded to students based on both their merit and financial need. Students inquiring about scholarships send in their application along with a recording of their playing. Students can receive partial or full scholarships.
The CM festival offers a comprehensive view of the elements of classical guitar playing. Theory, technique, performance, and musical expression are all emphasized. Students at the 12th edition in 2016 included children as young as 10, high school students, college students and amateur older adults. The students’ skill levels ranged from beginning to advanced levels. Many of the students were scholarship recipients and most of them had never performed before. One student actually received his introduction to classical guitar through the festival thanks to a scholarship. Age, skill level, and/or financial status should not be considered an impediment to attending the CM festival.
