Faculty Directory: Guitar
Private instruction is the foundation of a sound musical education. At NEC Prep, the depth, expertise, and diversity of our faculty assure a great match for our students' individual needs. Private lessons of 30, 45, and 60 minutes are offered for students of all levels (including beginners!).
A unique feature of our private lesson program is that it includes the opportunity to participate in workshops, recitals, evaluations, and our annual concerto competition, which give every student valuable performance experience and feedback from a variety of teachers.
Private lessons can begin at any time during the school year. For more information on how to get started, please click here. Please contact the Prep Office or use the form linked below to schedule a guitar placement.
Is your student interested in learning more about guitar? The Guitar Explorers classes are a fun way to discover the foundations of guitar technique. Students in the ages 5-9 class are encouraged to attend the class together with their parents for maximum learning potential. Basics covered include technique, terms, group etiquette, and basic literacy for guitar music. The class for ages 10-13 is designed with a more accelerated curriculum.
Ages 5-9: Saturday, 9:00-10:00 AM
Ages 10-13: Saturday, 10:00-11:00 AM
Chamber Music Ensembles
NEC's amazing faculty will guide you to new heights on the guitar! Chamber music ensembles are available for guitar duo, trio, quartet, and for guitar together with other instruments. Groups are determined by age, ability, and instrumentation. Each ensemble receives coachings throughout the full academic year, participates in two end-of-semester workshops, and performs in the Chamber Music Festival at the end of each semester. Auditions for guitar chamber music ensembles occur in the fall.
