The Peabody Guitar Ensemble Program is an applied study of ensemble arts in the context of guitar in a small ensemble setting.
Guitar duos, trios, and quartets learn traditional and contemporary repertoire with an emphasis on elements of technique, musicianship, performance, and ensemble skills as applied to this medium.
Guitar ensemble is required for the first 3 years of undergraduate and the 1st year of graduate study in guitar performance degrees.
Ensembles in this program will perform in various forums, including repertoire classes, master-classes, recitals, and in showcases in collaboration with various other departments of The Peabody Institute. The guitar ensemble program collaborates yearly with Peabody Dance in a showcase that explores integration of choreography with the immediacy of live performance.
Core learning outcomes for this program include:
