For anyone who would like to play a classical guitar and make music in a group, come join us! Music from the 17th century to the present will be played in the classical guitar fingerstyle method. A classical (nylon-stringed) instrument, footstool and music stand are required. It is important that the student can read music. This semester the class will be working on developing skills in the 3rd and 5th positions on the guitar. The first half of each class will feature work on guitar playing technique and expanded music reading skills. The second half of each class will feature repertoire development.
