APST 817 - Beginning Guitar Class

HC CNDP
2 credits
This course is designed primarily for beginning guitarists, or guitarists who would like to fill in some gaps in their formal training. We will focus on the development of solid technique and musicianship on the guitar and related plucked instruments. Various styles and approaches to guitar playing will be considered, including, but not limited to, classical, folk, “fingerstyle”, and historical (e.g. the lute, using the Conservatory’s collection of historical plucked instruments). Basics covered will include reading pitch notation and tablatures, creating accompaniments, melodic playing, playing by ear,’soloing’, historical contexts, and improvisation.
