Gheorghe Petrovan

Gheorghe Petrovan is a teacher with 41 years’ experience in Romanian education. 

Thirty years ago, in 1990, the guitar class was introduced in the Romanian music high schools. Between 1990-1993 he taught classical guitar at the Music High School in Ploiești. From 1993 to the present days he teaches at the ”Tudor Ciortea” Music High School in Brașov. Through the outstanding results achieved with many of his students, he had the honor of being invited to several renowned festivals in Romania and Austria.

His main ideal in exploring the fascinating universe of music with the students through the guitar is found in the lyrics of two famous poets:

"The music before everything" - Paul Verlaine

"The sound of the piano is a speech, the sound of the cello an elegy and the sound of the guitar a song" - Eugenio D' Ors
