11th INTERNATIONAL COMPOSITION CONTEST «LA MANCHA GUITARS»
in the framework of «Gitarrentage für Kinder und Jugendliche im Saarland».
Deadline for sending the composition: 30.11.2019
There are many children who start learning how to play the guitar, but few of them continue to practice as eagerly and enthusiastically as they do in the beginning. There are various reasons for it. Certainly one of them is lack of time to practice due to the time consuming work for school. Whatever the reasons may be, lecturers have to find a way to arouse the interest of their pupils so that the joy of making music will prevail. Here, chamber music represents an exceptional chance because it allows one to play meaningful and complete pieces in a group with only a few technical means.
With this in mind we have been organizing every year, starting in 2009, the «Days of the Guitar for Children and Teenagers». Our next Guitar Days are now scheduled for April 2020. In the context of this event, and on the basis of the demand for high quality compositions for guitar ensembles for children, we are happy to announce our 11th International Composition Contest «La Mancha guitars» in the framework of Gitarrentage für Kinder im Saaarland.
