A thorough knowledge of the material taught in Guitar I is necessary in order to qualify for Guitar II.

They will develop advanced music reading skills that will enable them to undertake the study of classical guitar and flamenco guitar. They will be required to play at least two complete compositions of a guitar score from a required list of com-positions. The student will also play major scales using only fretted strings. The student will be required to own, purchase, or have access to a non-amplified 6-string guitar from the outset of the class. Nylon strings are preferred but not required.
