In this way, ties are established between professional musicians, amateurs and guitar music lovers.

Various concerts-series are organised by „Kultur & Gitarre“ („Carbon & Stahl“, „Gitarre grenzenlos“), a monthly guitar matinee, competitions („Voice & Guitar“, "Gitarrentrios / Gitarrenquartette") and they offer workshops with different subjects around the guitar, not taught at music schools and colleges.
