The Guitar Performance Academy is an opportunity for classical guitar students receiving instruction at the Peabody Preparatory to further develop their musicianship and performance skills in solo and ensemble music. Students in this program will have additional opportunities master classes, workshops and community performances.
Upon a successful audition, students may register for the Performance Academy class on Thursday evenings. The Academy class consists of alternating ensemble rehearsals as well as a solo performance class.
To continue membership in Performance Academy, students must consistently demonstrate excellent preparation for lessons, participation in performances, and stellar attendance.
Note: Playing at the stated repertoire level does not ensure acceptance into Guitar Performance Academy.
While not required, successful participation of at least one year in Advanced or Teen ensemble, as well as a record of participation in departmental events (Fret Fest and/or Summer Guitar Intensive) will be looked on favorably for admission to the Performance Academy program.
