Applied Music (Guitar Ensemble I)
Guitar Ensemble I is designed for the student interested in exploring the guitar as a beginner, learning proper technique and the basic fundamentals of musicianship. As a group, the Guitar Ensemble will rehearse and perform guitar literature from a variety of musical genres. Student participation will develop elements of musicianship including, but not limited to tone production; technical skills; intonation; music reading skills; listening skills and analyzing music. Time outside of the school day may be scheduled for dress rehearsals and performances. A limited number of public performances may serve as a culmination of daily rehearsal and musical goals. Students are required to participate in performance opportunities, outside of the school day, that support and extend learning in the classroom. Students must furnish their own guitar (acoustic) and accessories.
