Learning objectives:

Orchestral Parts and Solos for Guitar 4 is directly related to the course Playing in the Orchestra. The aim of the course is to prepare guitar parts individually, especially in terms of attack and fingering, and to develop quick orientation when playing from the page. Its focus broadens the spectrum of the student's knowledge and skills to include those that will condition his/her possible future employment as a soloist and orchestral player. Emphasis is placed on the flexibility of technical mastery of compositions in the shortest possible time and mastery of the manner of playing in chamber and symphony orchestras, instrumental and interpretative mastery of works of the orchestral repertoire, and careful acceptance of the teacher's comments. This develops, over a longer period of time, the technique and quality of the performance of the piece, contributing to the quality of the student's presentation in the course Playing in the Orchestra. By practicing new repertoire, students prepare for possible auditions for chamber or symphony orchestras.
