Those are just some of the many ways your fingers are challenged and pushed to make incredible sounds on the Guitar. Revered as one of the “coolest” instruments in the industry because of its sound and look, playing guitar goes beyond just being cool at Arcadia!
We challenge everyone in the Guitar Program to experience as many different styles on the guitar while empowering and helping them discover their inner Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, B.B. King, Andrés Segovia or all of the above! Go a step further, grab your axe and show those skills at one of Arcadia’s performance stage opportunities like Band Program, Examinations (RCM/Arcadia) or Community events. Master the instrument and enroll into our elite teaching program to learn how to pass on that same magic and passion playing the guitar has to other students.
“Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’re gonna be rewarded.”
– Jimi Hendrix
