"LACM's thorough guitar program focuses on the fundamentals and real-world skills, preparing our students to leave as working and successful contemporary guitarists."

Molly Miller

Upon completion of the Bachelor of Music program in Guitar Performance, students will:

  1. The Guitar is one of the most popular instruments in history but is also one of the hardest instruments to master.
  2. Master a challenging combination of harmony, reading, rhythm playing, soloing, and accompaniment skill, along with access to a wide range of stylistic vocabulary.
  3. Our Guitar Performance curriculum emphasizes all of these while still encouraging you to express your unique voice.
  4. The centerpiece of your learning regimen is live performance in ensemble workshops virtually every day.
  5. Unlike most other guitar programs, you will have access to some of the most eminent professional working guitarists in the world and learn to master both the stage and recording studio.
  6. LACM prepares you for the music industry and what goes beyond school.
  7. Therefore the course includes a Music Business subject which allows one to learn the fundamentals of business models and more.
