The guitar ensembles are some of the many diverse performing groups at UNT. Fred Hamilton, Professor in Jazz Studies, coordinates them. In these ensembles, guitarists have the unique opportunity to rehearse and perform in a section of five or more guitars. This helps the student focus on reading skills, ensemble blend, group articulations, utilization of electric effects, comping and soloing. The premier group, the L-5, specializes in jazz, blues, rock, and electric avant-garde.
