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.
