Guitar Ensemble
Tutor: Ben Adler
Length: Semester class Class Period:  Wednesday, (Time TBD)

Description: In Guitar Ensemble students will put together a guitar project for the CHAT showcase. This is a great way for students who are already enrolled in lessons to test and push their skills on the guitar and further prepare them for a future as a musician. Ensemble does require quite a bit of practice, both individually and as a group, so auditions will be held for entry into the ensemble. At least one semester of guitar or equivalent experience is required.

Interested students should register for this class and then contact Ben for an audition (if needed).

Note: This is a 60 minute class. The tuition has been prorated accordingly.  A performance fee of $5 has been added to the cost of the class to help cover performance expenses. Also, please note that this class will NOT meet on September 5th.  The tuition has been prorated to accommodate 14 weeks.

The Christmas Celebration date is Thursday, December 17, 2020. (Alternate date is Thursday, December 10.) The Spring Showcase is Thursday, May 13, 2021.

Covid - 19 Contingency Plan - In the event that we are forced to transition to online classes at any point in the school year, this class will NOT be held.  Parents will receive a refund at the end of the semester for any classes that are not held.
