Designed to explore the wide musical and artistic range of the instrument, the Guitar Program features a flexible curriculum that equips students with the skills necessary for a variety of professional careers. This curriculum offers studies in traditional and cross-genre technical and stylistic skills, and helps each performer to develop a unique and personal style of playing. Working closely with program faculty, students can create a customized and multi-faceted course of study drawing from classical guitar, Baroque style, many kinds of improvisation, traditional and free jazz, composition, electro-acoustic practices, flamenco, traditional and modern Balkan, and traditional rock and blues. Students also may study a wide array of plucked-string instruments, including nylon string, steel string acoustic, electric and MIDI guitars, as well as early Western instruments, sarod and sitar.
