Students with no previous experience may take beginning classical guitar to obtain the skills necessary to play the guitar in any style. From there they will be prepared to participate in the second through fourth year advanced guitar classes and play in the Servite Guitar Ensembles.
The Servite Classical Guitar Program provides a truly college-prep guitar experience training students in the skills necessary to take guitar study to the post secondary level. Whether students desire to study guitar formally in college or not, the Servite guitar experience will be a well rounded guitar experience.
Servite guitarists participate in numerous performances throughout the year. There are two concerts, Winter and Spring, on the Servite campus, the annual Fullerton Museum Center concert, providing music for the Servite Fashion Show, Open House, Mother/Son Brunch, and many others including serving in the role of music ministry for campus Masses. Please see our schedule for more information about our performances.
Talented guest clinicians stop in several times a year, one being an annual visit by world renowned performer/composer/teacher Roland Dyens during his American tours. Other guests include members of the faculties of Chapman University, The Eastman School of Music, Loyola Marymount University, Cal-State Fullerton, Cal-State Dominguez Hills, UC-Irvine, and Vangard University. The groups also travel to festivals and workshops both in and outside of California. Our students have had the chance to work with many well known and respected artists.
