Recitals and Juries

Two graduate juries are required to determine fulfillment of performance requirements; two graduate recitals are required. Repertoire guidelines for juries are in the Guitar Department Manual, which is available from the Office of Admission and on the web site. Graduate students must perform a major concerto on a jury and on one of the graduate recitals, a department recital or some other venue. The first graduate recital must include music from three different musical periods. Program notes are required for juries.
