The main goal is for student to begin to develop the ability to play the guitar in a variety of guitar-based music from traditional to contemporary genres. Some of these genres are classical, jazz, blues, folk, country, and rock.
The student is required to perform music for an audience in a variety of settings. The performances could be solo or as part of a group. Attendance and participation at all scheduled public and school performances including those outside of the school day are required for all students involved in the performance.
The class also contains the study of music theory as it relates to the guitar.
