About Booking Classical Guitarists
A classical guitarist is a stupendous way to entertain and provide guests with an ambient, relaxed atmosphere. Playing with the tips of their fingers and fingernails, classical guitarist can play polyphonic music, which means two or more melodic voices performing together. Whether playing solo or with an ensemble, hiring a classical guitarist will add something special to your next private party, corporate event, wedding, or other special occasion.
There are a few things you should consider when hiring a classical guitarist. First, be sure to listen to audio and watch video samples. You want to be sure you are satisfied with the sound and look of the performer before you book him/her. Next, get references and read reviews. Talk to people in the area who have seen the performer and/or have booked them in the past. Last, always get a contract. Read the contract carefully and work out any details in regards to deposit requirements, length of performance, scheduled breaks, attire, travel, and lodging. Watch for specifications made by the performer and be sure you can meet them. Find out if they need sound equipment. Most classical guitarists require little setup/equipment, but it is smart to find out if they have their own sound equipment.
