Classical Guitarist Valeria Galimova Debuted in Armenia as the Primavera Foundation Education Program Mentor

On February 14, 2024, we welcomed our Classical Guitar Program Mentor Valeria Galimova in Yerevan! Valeria committed herself to a tight schedule with a bunch of educational activities. Valerya starts with a workshop on Physiology for Classical Guitarists and shared exercises for posture, finger strength, agility, and flexibility, warming up techniques, and post-practice routines to prevent body pain (we bet not only guitarists are sitting hours long!). Then Valeria performed a recital featuring pieces by F. Schubert, K. Mertz, and R. Dyens. The day program continued with a Public Talk. Valeria shared insights on moving and studying in Germany, covering financial planning, admission exams, academics, and the German lifestyle. Finally, Ms Galimova ran a classical guitar master class working on Johann Kaspar Mertz’s Tarantella with Lilit Sargsyan.
