This performance course is designed for students who can already play the guitar and read music to some extent. The lectures will involve finger style, guitar technique studies, and repertoire ranging from classical to traditional music from around the world. In a final concert, the students will perform works matching their technical level. Auditions for enrollment will take place during the first week of classes. A classical guitar for each student is required.
Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Intercultural Literacy
Designing, creating, and realizing: The course teaches students primarily to perform, but also to discuss and analyze this specific music. Emphasis will be on the original design and presentation of certain genres and styles. A concert at the end of the semester will be part of the assignments.
Intercultural Literacy: By studying music from different nationality, ethnic group, or historical period, students will gain knowledge of cross-cultural encounter; hence promoting a comparative reflection.
