Baroque Guitar Teacher

Hi everyone..I,m a middle aged classical guitar player who has owned a Baroque guitar for a year now and am enthralled by it and making good progress. I would like to get some lessons but there are no teachers in my area.I am thinking it would be great to have three months or so of lessons anywhere in the world, Europe would be great ,Rome maybe.This would be a serious commitment on my part and a great adventure. Any suggestions of people I could contact ?Many Thanks..See More
