It is the goal of the Classical Guitar Program to provide the training and background necessary to function in the multi-faceted career of professional classical guitarist. In addition to developing comprehensive musicianship skills, analytic abilities and stylistic knowledge, the undergraduate program's objectives are to:

- Develop technical facility in a systematic fashion.
- Develop progressively the student's collaborative and practical skills.
- Introduce principles and methods for guitar teaching.

Music studies are supported with basic general education coursework, including the study of foreign language.
The technical regimen that all BM students are required to master, as well as the repertory requirements that extend from the initial semester through the senior year, appear in the Music Conservatory Student Handbook. These are designed to build facility, strength and endurance, while acquainting students with the major genres, composers and styles.
