Dear fellow professionals,
Whether you are a luthier, concert performer, composer or teacher,
I invite you to make yourself known if you wish to be added to one of the professional groups of the forum.
These groups enable members and visitors to the forum to more easily identify the professionals among us. The indication "Luthier", "Concert performer", "Composer", or "Teacher" appears in the profiles of the members of these groups. The usernames of the members of these groups appear in a colour specific to the group.
The groups are defined as follows:
Members of the Concert performers group are professional guitar and lute players who give at least six concerts per year and have made at least one CD, and make a living from their performing. They give concerts in different countries. They make a contribution to the resources of the forum by posting, at least once a year, an mp3 or a video.
Members of the Composers group compose regularly for the classical guitar or lute, and are published. They should indicate in their profile under which publisher(s) their work has appeared. They contribute towards the free resources of the forum by posting, at least once a year, a composition or an arrangement for guitar or lute.
Members of the Teachers group teach classical guitar or lute professionally. They should indicate in their profile in which school or in which town or city they teach. They contribute to the teaching resources of the forum by posting mp3s or videos, arrangements or compositions, or analyses or online lessons, and regularly provide help to the amateur guitarists of the forum.
Members of the Luthiers group make a living from guitar or lute-making. They use their expertise to help other members by regularly answering questions and making useful posts on the forum.
(There is a separate group
for amateur luthiers)
You can be a member of several groups at once if you contribute towards each of those groups.
Under certain conditions
any member of the forum can promote his professional activities for free, whether he is a member of a professional group or not.
Members of the four professional groups must be registered under their real names, not a pseudonym. Usernames can be changed when joining a group.
If you are interested in belonging to a professional group, please let me know in reply to this post or by PM, supplying your real name if your username needs to be changed, and giving links to your relevant contributions on the forum.
