Members of the guitar studio take a one-hour private lesson each week and participate in a group studio class each Friday afternoon. These musicians also form the core membership of the guitar ensembles. Each semester concludes with a final “jury” performance exam before a panel of music faculty. Students celebrate their achievements with a public recital during the last semester of their degree program.
Many students who might like to join the guitar studio don’t own an instrument. To help ease the transition into the program, South Texas College provides Cordoba guitars (C12s) that students may use in any guitar related class.
