    Guitar Basics is designed for beginning guitarists who wish to understand the fundamentals of music and performance through the guitar. Prior instruction on the instrument is not required. In this course, students will develop fluency in reading standard notation through the use of beginning classical and fingerstyle guitar techniques. Other basic skills such as chord strumming, tablature notation, improvisation, and ensemble playing will be covered. With a primary focus on the classical and rock guitar repertories, students will explore a wide range of musical genres to develop a strong foundation for further studies. Students are required to have their own instrument. The use of a classical guitar (nylon-string) is recommended for this course, but acoustic guitars (steel-string) will be accepted. Upon completing this course, students are encouraged to audition for individual lessons to pursue a minor or major in music. Also, students may continue their studies on the guitar through non-major lessons. It is recommended that less experienced students wishing to register for individual lessons take this course before auditioning.
