The guitar program is what you make of it. You’ll start with learning classical guitar alongside your peers in small groups and individual instruction, and then progress to any of the many musical styles that feature the guitar. With formal and informal ensembles, performance is a key piece of studying guitar. Collaboration is at the root of performance and learning, with one-on-one instruction and studio classes with fellow guitarists. Instruction from masters in classical and jazz guitar focuses on technique, musicianship, harmony, pedagogy and repertoire.
