I decided to bump up the dates of these 1 hour workshops on technique, practice and performance anxiety, and make them FREE due to the COVID19 virus and its ramifications.
Tech Talk, Perfect Practice and Performance Anxiety Rehab (PAR) will regular workshops for Premium Members on my upcoming new website. Check them out – at no charge.
Each workshop will be comprised of Performers and Auditors. I’ll interact with Performers directly while Auditors observe. Both groups can ask questions.
All participants will need to become a Subscriber. If you’re not already a Subscriber become one by going to the Subscribe button on the left hand panel of this page.
Performers will play or demonstrate (depending on the workshop) while Auditors can watch and participate in the Q & A at the end of each session.
All three workshops will be broadcast over ZOOM. Space is limited so register soon. Once you’ve subscribed contact me (Contact Scott) and let me know which workshop you’d like to attend (you can attend all three). Also let me know if you’d like to act as a Presenter or Attendee. You’ll get a confirmation of your registration and the ZOOM workshop link.
Tech Talk for the Classical Guitarist
Saturday, March 28 @ 2:00 PM PDT
Scott’s Tech Talk for the Classical Guitarist will explore the foundation for a solid technique for the classical guitarist. Subjects will focus around proper positioning, efficient movements and technical exercises that can aid in a more relaxed, more efficient way of playing resulting in better accuracy and faster playing.
Performers can demonstrate their technique questions on the guitar.

All the information on the internet won’t make you a better guitar player without practice. But even players who practice consistently often show few results for their efforts and with good reason; a practice that feels good is one that produces short term results. Conversely a perfect practice actually feels like anything but. Since the benefits of good practice often don’t manifest themselves for weeks, players often chase a variety of concepts only to come up short. A consistent practice, based on newly discovered information on how we learn, will reward the player with a more effective practice and positive results, with less time spent in the practice room.
I have spent decades developing practice guidelines and tools that will keep your practice effective and fresh. In addition you’ll learn how to use the Kritzer Studio Practice Plan.
Performers will get feedback on their current practice regime and practice techniques.
Performance Anxiety Rehab
Saturday, April 18 @ 2:00 PM PDT
Performance anxiety robs us of our potential and neutralizes our hard work in the practice room. While some nervousness is natural and even beneficial prior to a performance, its important to eliminate the needless and even damaging effects of performance anxiety that undermine your hard work and potential developed in the practice room.
Join me for this workshop where we’ll begin to learn how to manage performance anxiety through effective practice tools resulting in a more satisfying performance experience.
Performers will get immediate feedback on how to develop performance skills guided by intuition instead of that destructive voice.
In addition, over time we’ll form a community of players who will meet for PAR PODS; a safe environment to try out your newly learned performing skills!
