Guitar Ensemble Class Registration (Spring 2017)
PCG Guitar Ensemble Class Registration (Thursday Night Class Registration)
Marylhurst University (MU) and Portland Classic Guitar (PCG) are pleased to offer two guitar ensemble classes taught by MU Professor and PCG Proprietor William Jenks this spring of 2017. These exciting two classes will explore various ensemble repertoire from the renaissance through contemporary eras. Both classes will rehearse the same music and perform together in the recitals, master classes, and other exciting events scheduled. Students who take the class will improve their sight reading, technique, ear training, musicianship, and gain experience performing and interacting in a group setting. The legendary guitarist John Williams told William Jenks in and interview back in 2010: "The problem with guitar pedagogy today is there is too much emphasis on solo repertoire and not enough ensemble training."
