Greetings! Welcome to the Guitar Program at the Orange County School of the Arts. The OCSA Guitar Program is a one-of-a-kind college and professional preparatory program designed to help students further their understanding of the performance, history, technique, and theory of the guitar.
The Guitar Program is currently in its tenth season of offering musical instruction, most notably in jazz/contemporary, classical, and world music styles. We believe it is vital that each student receive a well-rounded education, and that all starts with playing the guitar! We offer a variety of courses designed for students to play as soloists, in small groups, and large ensembles.
While refining their abilities as performers, students will also be given opportunities to study the history of music, develop advanced musical literacy, and be trained in the finer points of the technique of each style of guitar. Each student is involved in a variety of learning experiences with performance opportunities throughout the year.
The Guitar Program is widely recognized for its high caliber training. Students of the Guitar Program have won numerous national and international competitions. Graduates have been accepted into some of the most prestigious guitar programs at universities in the U.S. and abroad.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share who we are and what we do with you!
