The purpose of this course is to explore the techniques of classical guitar, as well as the practice of good musicianship – rhythmic accuracy, tone production, sight reading, and phrasing – through ensemble performance. During class we will read through pieces of a wide variety of periods, focusing on stylistically appropriate performance practices and stopping, as lead by the demands of the material, to examine relevant technical issues, for example – left hand slurs, barring positions, arpeggio and scale techniques. Students must have a usable guitar (nylon preferred) and have moderate (through 5th position) sight reading facility.
