Who can join the ensemble?

Guitar Society Members of all ages and levels are welcome. If you can read music, come join us and share your love for the guitar with others.

What happens at the rehearsals?

Rehearsals will start with warm-up exercises, followed by a discussion of technique and the music to be played.

What else do I need to know about the ensemble?

  • You will be provided with your music part and supplementary materials. Please bring your own music stand and footstool.
  • At the beginning of the semester you will be assigned music based on your playing level.
  • Your regular attendance is appreciated because each guitar part is very important for the successful preparation of a piece.
