Lessons for Adults and Youth
Serving the community for over 15 years the Jacobs Guitar Academy at the Jacobs School of Music is pleased to announce the expansion of the program to include adult group classes. Now offering rock, pop, flamico, jazz as well as classical instruction structured in time frames sure to fit in even the busiest schedules.
The Youth program is designed for students 5-18 years of age, regardless of previous musical experience. Individual Guitar lessons and ensemble sessions led by Jacobs School of Music faculty and instructors are offered for all young students.
Lessons are offered year-round for three semesters – Fall , Spring, and Summer.
Building strong musical foundations and providing fundamentals of music for all students, the instructors and faculty of the Jacobs Guitar program follow flexible curricula to meet the individual needs of every participant. At the end of each semester, students are given the opportunity to showcase their accomplishments by performing at a Jacobs Guitar Academy recital in one of the professional concert halls at the Jacobs School of Music. Throughout the course of study, students are able to collaborate with other Year-Round Jacobs programs such as the String Academy, Young Pianists, and Ballet.
At the end of each year, the students are presented a Certificate of Completion from the Jacobs School of Music. For students moving to college enrollment, the Certificate is not only a record of acheivement for the year, but it is also a valuable reference for a college application process, showing the student's extracurricular activities and aquisition of artistic abilities regardless of the major area they choose to explore.
