Guitar students will expand upon their weekly classes in this performance-based and fun ensemble setting.  Participation in the guitar ensemble will not only provide additional teaching to advance each student’s technical development on their instrument but will facilitate a greater ability to understand how this very versatile instrument can be used in a variety of musical styles and arrangements.

While the majority of our repertoire will consist of relatively modern rock and pop arrangements, we will also explore classical, blues, jazz, and folk styles as well. Each piece of music that the ensemble works on will sharpen their rhythmic skills,  develop their musical ears, and deepen their understanding of musical structure (how music is constructed).  More advanced students may also have the opportunity to improvise with the ensemble or even compose or arrange a short piece for the group with help from the instructor.

This 8-week class will culminate in a performance at the Summer Showcase on 9/9 weekend, and families will be given an audio/video recording of the final performance showing progress.
