masterworks for guitar orchestra and small ensembles: Bach,
Handel, Ravel, Mozart and many others. This course culminates
with one or more public concerts. Open only to those with
classical guitar and note reading experience. If you're
a beginner, enroll in Mus 121D or 121E. Recommended prep:
Mus 121C. 3 credits. TTR 10:30-11:45.
Hear LCG play Machado's Xote, Modinda & Caterête (11/21/2010 concert):
of the same old chuck 'n jive, hum 'n strum guitar? Learn
to play classic guitar! Classic guitar combines melody & accompaniment
together into a musically complete solo. It's the most satisfying
way to play guitar! We start at the
beginning, so you learn music reading, technique
and tuning before you start your first solos. When you
finish this course you'll play solos at the level of
Greensleeves or Malaguena. No prerequisites. Open to
everyone! 2 credits. MWF 10:00-10:50 & 12:00-12:50
