GUITAR CLASSES

 

  Designed for the beginning guitar player.  Learn how to read music on the guitar, develop and refine fingerstyle technique.  Learn to play simple, good sounding pieces for guitar and explore the classical guitar world through recordings and live performances.


 

Students work on technique, sight reading, development of repertoire, performance, transcription and transposition.  Class members make up the Cabrillo Guitar Orchestra (25 years old now!). Performance opportunities for students in the classroom and on the concert at semester's end.
