We welcome you to the 9th year of guitar seminars in the little Hungarian village of Köveskál.
  The village of Köveskál is located close to the northern shores of Lake Balaton, 150 km south of Budapest. In the nature preserve and of culturally protected area of the Kál Basin we have an old stone house with a big garden. Each year we invite fingerstyle guitarists to join us there for a week long seminar with some of the best players in this style, as teachers.
  The Kál Basin offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with, an ideal setting in which to practice and concentrate on your music. In addition, the weather is often warm and bathing in the Balaton or exploring the wine cellars of Fekete Hill can be a refreshing break after long hours of playing.

Arrival day is Monday july 6. No regular lessons on monday, but a small welcome party and hopefully some informal jamming and playing.
  Classes run from Tuesday until Saturday with Woody and Mike teaching both morning and afternoon groups. Lasse will be available for private lessons all through the week.
  Special workshops can also be arranged during the week.
  Jam sessions will take place in our garden, and at the Harom Huszar Inn.
  Seminar participants will give a concert and teachers will give concerts as well.  
  Departure is set for Sunday july 12.
  Those that sign up will receive a pdf file with information and music. 

Students will be lodged in double rooms at an Inn called Harom Huszar. Breakfast and lunch served at the Inn.

If you fly to Budapest, the easiest way to get to Köveskal is by train from Budapest South – Déli Palya Udvár – 2 to 3 hours. I will pick you up at the Révfulöp railwaystation.
  If you travel by car, I will provide you with directions once you have informed me of your travel plans.

If the above looks interesting write me at info@lassejohansson.se and I will, of course, answer whatever additional questions you might have about this seminar.

Come and join us for an exciting week in Köveskál!

Hi Lasse,
The seminar was in my opinion very good. Lodging was very fine, teaching was excellent, and the atmosphere very relaxed yet with people working hard.
 Thanks a lot for everything
Frank De Franceschi

I would like to send a BIG thank you to both of you for some wonderful days in Hungary this year. The workshop was really fantastic with a very good mixture of lessons and informal sessions. Also the mixture of participants was very good and I really hope to see you both and the other participants in the future.
 I had lost some of the joy of playing the guitar prior to the seminar but I can really say that this seminar has brought back the joy of playing again!
Take care both of you, and hope to see you again soon

Hi Lasse!
The lessons were fantastic Both Lasse’s and Woody’s lessons were very inspiring and gave me a lot to work on that will last a long time. It was very nice with the concert.
 Lodging was perfect and the evening excursions were very nice.
 Köveskal is in itself an extraordinary beautiful village.
 Everyone contributed to make the workshop a most enjoyable week. A highlight of the year.
Cliff Robinson

I think it is ideal to have two teachers approaching the music from different points of view, with you concentrating more on ragtime arrangements and Woody on blues and different techniques. Your teaching was fantastic; you were aware of everyone’s differing abilities, and tailored your lessons accordingly.
 The overall atmosphere was terrific, and couldn’t be bettered. You were great hosts, the setting is very beautiful, and our fellow guitarists were a really nice bunch of people.. All the best.

The seminar was a huge success for all participants. The combination of Lasse and Woody was incredible. Agi was the earthly loving friend and mother for the whole group. We are sure to try and meet again in Köveskal… I hope you both had a good time as we all had.
