Nagaland Classical Guitar Society (NCGS) in collaboration with Indian Guitar Federation (IGF) has organized a six-day classical guitar workshop starting, Thursday.
An internationally acclaimed classical guitarist Dr. Paul Cesarczyk, who will be conducting the classes, has arrived here on Thursday along with IGF president, Avik Saha and director general Veda Aggarwal.
During the inauguration programme at Hope Centre for Excellence (HCE), Nagarjung, Dr. Paul expressed happiness for the warm welcome. He said he was here to provide the special care that guitar players and music teachers may need.
He informed that the workshop will include classes like ensemble, lessons, masters and non-guitarists guides to teaching music besides a compressed course from “Classical Guitar Pedagogy” which he has compiled and teaches as a 16 class course at Mahidol University College of Music in Bangkok where he heads the guitar department. Polish born American Dr. Paul, besides performing at his native place New York and most of the States in the US has also played for audiences in Italy, Spain, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and holds an annual two-week class in Europe. Drawing his inspiration from classical guitar icons like Andres Segovia and Julian Bream, Dr Paul started playing guitar at the age of 8 and has been teaching guitar at different levels for the past 20 years and practices for two hours habitually. 
According to him teaching, listening and learning music improves not just the performance skill in a person but even focus, appreciation of beauty and mental health of a person as a whole.
He acknowledged that composition is a part and parcel of a good musician where one can explore and express the beauty of music.
Apart from his profession as a guitar teacher, Dr. Paul admitted that he loves to listen to Piano, orchestra music, violin and the way other instrument performers interpret music.
The guitar guru who plays a John Price guitar from Australia said as a guitarist his motivation is to express something to the best of his ability and performance ability like any other sports person.
Avik Saha in a short speech said his arrival makes him feel like he is back in the land of his origin.
He said a society who produces more musicians than lawyers will succeed and went on to say that Nagas more than any other people will hold on to music and the values of music culture and for this sole reason IGF has come up with efforts to streamline and focus on guitar as the instrument is simply convenient, multi-faceted and expressible in itself.
NCGS president Joey Woch also expressed hope that guitar teachers in Nagaland will be greatly benefited by the workshop and wished a fruitful week of learning.
Music Task Force, Nagaland director Gugs Chishi was also present during the inaugural programme besides the 20 trainees from various institutions in Nagaland.
The workshop which is sponsored by IGF and hosted by HCE will culminate with a concert on April 28 at Bundrock Memorial Chapel, Patkai Christian College.
