The guitar forums provide students an opportunity to perform newly learned solo and chamber music. Lectures are also given during this time on various topics, such as technique, interpretation, practice methods, memorization, amplification, recording, competitions, and career planning. The FIUMGO aims to help guitarists develop ensemble skills, improve reading skills, experience working with a conductor, and perform a wide range of repertoire within a large group in the on-campus and off-campus concert venues, including the Miami International GuitART Festival.
