The first seven days of the course will overlap with the celebration of the Petrer Guitar Festival. You can enjoy the concerts and activities of the festival. At the end of the course, a professional guitarist will test the guitars made by the students.
All the students will have unlimited access to the complete online course (valued at 295€) and will have my advice by email, with which they will be able to remember each one of the processes of the construction of the guitar and thus continue building more guitars after the course.
This is what students from last year's course say:
...We have spent unforgettable and emotional moments and for that reason I would like to mention our dear Carlos who has done everything to create that magic of transforming the noble matter into sound. I send you, from a distance, all my friendship..." (Ysaac)
"building the guitar and the time we have been together has been a unique experience ... of those that mark life ... chance sometimes leads us almost without realizing a beautiful reality ... Carlos you are a great luthier and a sincere simple person ... and forceful ... of all you have transmitted it to us ... and that no longer takes it from anybody..." (Luis)
"The course conducted by Carlos Juan Busquiel is betting on quality. It is worth every minute and every construction step. The guitar that you build with him is of high quality and having the online course is key to continue building later. In conclusion, if you are interested in making your own guitar, this is without a doubt the best option." (Ángel)
