The Guitar Department initiates a wide range of projects where teachers and students collaborate and actively participate.
The department has instructors with long experiences as pedagogues and performing guitarists. We cover a broad range of genres and expressions in the Classical tradition, from early lute repertoires to contemporary compositions. Our aim is to familiarise and train our guitar students within a broad and varied repertoire.
