There is perhaps no better way to improve on guitar than practicing and performing music for solo guitar. Whether you are a songwriter or purely an instrumentalist, students will leave this class with boosted technical proficiency and a deeper understanding of fretboard music theory and harmony.

We will learn full pieces from guitar masters past and present. We will also employ fretboard theory to create original chord-melodies. Weekly recording prompts and in-class discussions create an encouraging and constructive community environment.

Topics covered:

  • Learn solo guitar repertoire from classic works to hidden gems to modern favorites
  • Creating chord-melodies using a given melody
  • Practice strategies and proper technique
  • Artistry, dynamics, and articulation
  • Practical theory and counterpoint for the fretboard

Prerequisites:

  • Open position chords
  • Familiarity with reading TABS
  • Basic music theory knowledge (i.e. you know where the half steps are in a major scale and how to build triads)
