Guitarists enrolled in the Master of Music in Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration) work closely with our faculty in private lessons, developing their individual artistry and deepening their knowledge of technique, harmony, improvisation, and more. In addition to private lessons, guitar principals also take an ensemble course each semester, expanding their skills as performers and collaborative artists, while exploring a wide range of musical genres, from jazz to flamenco to pop.

Building upon this foundation of instrumental proficiency, our master’s program also teaches artists the production skills and business acumen they’ll need to create their best work and navigate today’s music industry.
