San Francisco Conservatory of Music Community Guitar Orchestra
• What we'll do The San Francisco Conservatory of Music Adult Extension Division is creating a Community Guitar Orchestra. It will bring together Bay Area guitar enthusiasts to rehearse and perform a wide range of musical styles from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Modern periods. Under the direction of guitarist Scott Cmiel, students rehearse in a collaborative environment to improve their musicianship, technique, and reading skills. A placement assessment is required for participation. Placement is required to enable the director to create ensembles where performers will feel excited and enthusiastic about the music they are playing. There is no need to be a virtuoso - good tone, good memory, and enthusiastic attitude are all that’s required. PLACEMENT REQUIREMENTS Performance of a solo work which demonstrates your ability Two-octave scale using any left hand fingering you like and played rest stroke with i-m alternation A pima arpeggio and a pami arpeggio using common chords or open strings Placement can be done via video recording or in person. Please send video recordings to Justin Sun, Program Manager for the Adult Extension Division, at [masked]. It is recommended that the video recording be sent via Google Drive, Dropbox, Youtube, or similar video hosting services. Placement can also be scheduled in person with Scott Cmiel. Please contact Justin Sun at [masked] to schedule an in person placement. • What to bring • Important to know

What we're about

We're a group of guitarists and luthiers, professionals as well as amateurs, of all ages and levels, who enjoy getting together, playing for one another informally, meeting for open mics and occasionally going to concerts together. We welcome acoustic guitarists who play any music in fingerpicking style. (Image by Made Underground, from flickr)
