The William B. Travis Classical Guitar program is made up of students in grades 9-12. There are 3 ensembles of differing difficulty are available to students depending on on playing ability. The classical guitar program is supported by a partnership with Austin Classical Guitar. ACG provides our curriculum (www.Guitarcurriculum.com) and supports our students with private lessons and enrichment opportunities. Student guitar ensembles perform for a variety of school events and are available to perform for a donation to the program. We believe that music has to power to change the lives of our students and in some cases, even to save those lives. The William B. Travis Guitar Program is designed to provide an experience for students that will enable them to develop a life-long understanding and appreciation for music. Through their education as musicians, opportunities will be provided for them to develop their performance, leadership, self-confidence, and teamwork skills. It is the music departments` belief that music is an integral part of every child’s education and that the experiences and knowledge that a person gains through the study of music helps to develop highly successful world citizens.
