Guitar Ensemble Performance is an essential part of a guitarists development. The benefits of Guitar Ensemble playing are many and help the guitarist not only as a musician but also in their personal growth. I find that my Guitar Ensemble students progress quicker than most students as they are learning repertoire and parts for each other as well as improvising and keeping time.
Benefits also include -
Team work. Working together toward a common goal.
Gain performance experience and build confidence.
Preparedness for HSC or other Music exams through performance experience.
Reading Music Notation. This is a valuable skill for any Guitarist allowing them the opportunity to play in a variety of ensemble settings and styles.
Meeting other guitarists and musicians who share common interests and learning from each other.
Improving your own guitar playing for the good of the ensemble, therefore improving as a musician.
Becoming aware of other musicians, listening to what they are playing and how that works with what you are playing.
Improved timing through ensemble awareness.
Multitasking. Students need to read, count, listen and operate their instruments all at the same time. Exposure to a variety of Music styles.
