In most schools, children who play guitar do not get the same opportunities as those who play orchestral instruments. Learning how to read music and eventually perform with others in a group setting is vital to a student’s overall music education. The Guitar Ensemble classes will provide students of any age or skill level an opportunity to not only read music in a group, but to also learn practical, and FUN ways to use the musical tools that a guitar (or bass guitar) player needs to perform all styles of music. Also unique to Guitar Ensemble is being around a number of musicians every week who are working on the same things that you are! When students surround themselves with others working to become better musicians as well, they’ll find encouragement from each other and maintain a healthy and productive outlook on their musical development. Guitar Ensemble is a wonderful supplement to private lessons, and is highly encouraged for all guitar players!
Guitar Ensemble is a class for all guitar players and a bass player too! Why guitar ensemble? Guitar is a versatile instrument capable of rhythm, harmony, and melody. Combining multiple guitar players into a group, all playing together, is quite an awesome experience. Guitar students very rarely get the ensemble experience that band and orchestra instruments do in school. Guitar ensemble is a great way to get experience playing guitar and learning to read music while playing in a group.

Guitar Ensemble is a great way for Guitar Players to get more exposure to reading music and performing with other guitarists. A few schools have started guitar programs but still most schools offer very little if any opportunity for guitar players. Students should generally have some private lesson experience before joining the guitar ensemble. Basic note reading will be required. Guitar Ensemble will include training to improve play as well as working on performance pieces.
