Workshops

Fingerstyle Fixation - Michael Fix guitar camps.

Since the early 90s, Michael has been presenting guitar workshops.  What started out as Maton product nights in music stores, quickly 

Agc1

developed into intense, inspirational acoustic ’Guitar Power’ sessions, popular throughout Australia’s eastern states.

 

Since then, Michael has been involved in many formats of guitar teaching, including running week long guitar schools, two or three day guitar camps, and four day learning/holiday camps, such as his inaugural Austria Guitar Retreat in 2019.  He has been a guest tutor three times at the Tommy Emmanuel guitar camp, and also three times at the Tuscany Guitar Camp.

 

As well as teaching songs, and techniques, Michael focuses on the importance of preparation, leading to increased confidence. This preparation phase takes in everything from practice routine, right through to preparing for a debut performance, whether it be in front of a single person, or an audience. Michael also includes seminars on stagecraft, and dealing with performance anxiety, and a provides many tips and ideas to help conquer nerves.

 

Michael encourages a mutually supportive, fun, and non-competitive environment, with many opportunities for participants of all levels to expand their skills by jamming with fellow participants, and testing performance skills at the evening informal open-mic sessions.
