Guitar

The heart of the Guitar program is the study of classical guitar and its rich history. Students are encouraged to pursue projects in flamenco, blues, jazz, pop, rock, metal, and other styles and to compose and perform their own music.

Guitar students are required to study ear training, sight-reading, music theory, and musicianship. Performance covers solos, small ensembles, and large ensembles.  The curriculum includes solo performance, guitar ensemble, technique, fingerboard harmony, improvisation and history of music.

GUITAR AUDITIONS will be held on Friday, January 31, 2020 or Friday, February 7, 2020 beween 3:30pm and 7pm. Sign up for either date on the application and change the hard copy or let us know and we'll make the change for you.
