The San Jacinto Valley Academy Guitar Program was first established in 2014 and offers classes to students in grades 3-12.  With an emphasis in classical training, the program is designed to provide students the opportunity to develop a solid technical and musical foundation within a safe and supportive learning environment.  Through the implementation of a sequential curriculum, students acquire the necessary skills to progress from the preparatory level to advanced levels of proficiency.  By encouraging engagement and open dialogue, the program strives to develop a strong community which cultivates a lifelong love for the arts.
