The Classical Guitar area provides students the opportunity to develop proper classical technique and overall music skills as they pertain to the guitar. Through the study of solo and chamber music repertoire and the study of pedagogical materials in private lessons and studio classes, students will develop the necessary skills for performing and teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Participation in the Georgia Southern Guitar Ensemble will allow students to further develop their ensemble/chamber music and solo performance skills and further their knowledge of the instrument’s repertoire.
The Department of Music realizes that some undergraduate students may have an interest in studying classical guitar and may have experience with other forms of the instrument. Often, however, these students have not had the advantage of significant classical guitar instruction. If you have an interest in studying classical guitar at GSU but do not feel that you are prepared for an audition at this time, please contact Dr. Brian Luckett (firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up an interview and discuss options.
Other Opportunities – Second Discipline in Music Technology
The M.M. in Music Performance gives students an opportunity to work extensively with a teacher/mentor to improve their technical and interpretative skills and to broaden their solo performing repertory. Students take supporting courses in the literature of their instrument or voice type, advanced analysis, and the history of music. The capstone is a full solo recital that demonstrates proficiency in performing a broad range of musical styles.
