The Classical Guitar Program

The classical guitar program offers students the very best in guitar pedagogy, with weekly lessons, performance seminars, chamber music coachings, and guest master classes. The Conservatory of Music also offers a fully equipped recording studio in which students can record their own CDs. Students perform regularly in the conservatory’s Recital Hall, in which several excellent classical guitar CDs have been recorded, and in outreach concerts in the community.

In addition to the Performing Arts Center on campus, opportunities abound in nearby New York City to hear professional recitals. Students can also hear internationally accomplished soloists at the Connecticut Classical Guitar Society concerts in Hartford, Conn., and participate in its master classes.
