About CCM Classical Guitar

The study of classical guitar at CCM is strongly performance based. The cornerstone of all degree programs is private lessons with faculty, who serve as mentors for students and direct their individual musical, performing and teaching growth. The curriculum emphasizes the development of the well-rounded, holistic musician by providing a solid background in music history and theory as well as areas specific to each musical medium. Undergraduate students enjoy a close collaboration with UC through a general education core that supplements their education with academic course work while graduate students specialize more precisely in their chosen field.
