City Music Center of Duquesne University's Guitar and Bass Workshop provides a positive, encouraging, and non-competitive learning environment through collaboration and high quality musical content. Since 1986, this workshop has offered focused studies and has inspired musicians of all ages, professional and non-professional, by offering a wide selection of coaching styles for the guitarist and bassist. In the past twenty-four years we have created alliances with guitar manufacturers and organizations, which have provided a one-of-a-kind workshop experience that assists students in gaining a lifelong interest in guitar and participation in music.
