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 to several pieces of music, both as a soloist as an ensemble.

The Guitar Ensemble will perform in concert twice during the school year. Students will also have several optional performance opportunities throughout the school year.
