About - Melbourne Guitar Foundation


The Melbourne Guitar Foundation was founded in 2014 with a mission to promote and cultivate the classical guitar in Australia.

Our vision is of an engaged local community of guitarists contributing towards a culture of learning, support and sharing of ideas to create the best musical and artistic environment in Australia.

Through masterclasses, individual lessons, concerts, competitions and festivals, the MGF seeks to engage the Australian community with the best classical guitarists throughout the world. By nurturing and developing an Australian wide guitar family made up of professional concert artists, teachers, amateurs and enthusiasts alike we will encourage the next generation of Australian classical guitar concert artists. 

With each visiting artist in our MGF Concert Series we are proud to offer students the opportunity to partake in private lessons or masterclasses. Simply contact us to register your interest!

Michael MacManus B.Mus(Hons) and Evan Hopkins M.Mus are the directors and founders of the MGF.
