Guitar Ensemble is an ensemble class rather than a class where one learns to accompany songs. Students will play different parts like in an orchestra. The music will travel through different genres during the year: classical, folk, rock and jazz. Basic note and tablature reading skills will be introduced and there will be opportunities to review basic chords and strumming patterns as well. (Prerequisite: Guitar I or equivalent)
