What is Repertoire?

Repertoire is telling a story with music.

Although most music shares the same basic elements of:


Rhythm


Melody


Harmony

... these elements are put together in different ways, rather as people speak the same language in different regions with particular "dialects" and local "accents".

These differences make up musical styles, and they are useful for categorising music and organising your learning. Remember that in real life people don't live in boxes and it is rare to find a musician or composer who only understands or works in one style exclusively.

The guitar repertoire is vast. Guitar is found in practically every style of music.
