The Guitar class requires no prior experience and all levels are welcome. No audition is required.

Students will focus on proper playing technique, staff notation and theory. Students will explore a wide variety of musical genres. Students will learn the melody and chordal accompaniment for pieces from a wide range of musical genres, both as a soloist as an ensemble.

The Guitar Ensemble will perform in three concerts during the school year, the winter and spring concerts and the Falcon Finale. Students will also have several optional performance opportunities throughout the school year.
