Description

Multiple guitars in one group create a sonic experience by combining harmony, melody and rhythm. This ensemble will improve students’ sight-reading, chord knowledge, and build right hand and left hand technique. Leveled by experience, students read notation, explore diverse repertoire including classical, pop and jazz and learn valuable ensemble skills such as blend, expression, soloing and accompaniment. Students also dive into scales, arpeggios and fingerings that  music. 

Students joining a guitar ensemble should have some experience reading music at an intermediate level and know basic chords and scales. Students should have some experience reading music in open-position in a few different keys as well as familiarity with reading basic rhythms in a steady tempo. To determine if you are ready to join the guitar ensemble, please contact our community music school administrative team at cmsadmin@bkcm.org to set up a placement audition.
