Guitar Ensemble

This course is designed for beginning guitarists who wish to understand the fundamentals of music and performance through the guitar. Prior instruction is not required.

Basic skills such as chord strumming, tablature notation, improvisation, and ensemble playing will be covered. Students are required to have their own instrument. The use of a classical guitar nylon-string is highly recommended for the purposes of this course, but acoustic guitars (steel-string) will be accepted. Upon completing this course, students may continue their studies on the guitar through lessons (FNRT-256).


Performing Arts events at RIT have been canceled or postponed while campus is closed due to COVID-19. To give you an idea of the types of events that RIT generally hosts, please visit our Events page for a small sample of previously-scheduled performances.
