What the Salamanca Academy did today:
The Spanish guitar. One of the most famed instruments in the country. This instrument is widely used and played by many people in the country. Not only that but also by some of the most talented musicians to come from Spain.
Our students had another great opportunity to learn more about this fine instrument in the form of a tour of a local factory where artisans craft guitars. The students even helped build a guitar themselves—a challenge within itself!
After learning about the construction of the guitars they enjoyed an intimate performance showcasing one of builders playing skills. Maybe one day some of the students can purchase their very own custom made guitar and become the next great musician. The closing reception is tonight and we may expect to see tears.
We will not be posting a blog on Friday due to the students' travel schedule.
