Music Performance - Classical Guitar, MM
Offered in: Chicago
It is the goal of the Classical Guitar Program to provide the training and background necessary to function in the multifaceted career of a professional classical guitarist. The graduate program's objectives are to:
- develop and refine technical and musical abilities through the study and performance of challenging works from the traditional and modern repertories;
- provide ongoing solo and ensemble performing experiences;
- develop principles and methods for teaching, with emphasis on critical listening, problem-solving, verbal articulation, psychological insights, communication, inspiration, and clarity;
- develop skill to effectively transcribe repertoire from other instruments for guitar.
Graduate applied study is aimed at developing a technically and artistically demanding, as well as stylistically balanced, final recital. All technical studies presented at juries, and all repertory performed injuries and programmed on the recital, are at the discretion of the teacher. For further information, consult the program requirements in the Music Conservatory Student Handbook.
