Welcome to the Madras Guitar Homepage! The Madras Guitar Ensemble is a very young, but rapidly growing and successful music program. Our mission is to offer music instruction that is clearly outside of the “classical” setting. The program is often coupled with band and choral experiences throughout middle school for many students. It is our belief that the study of any musical instrument, whether it be in the choral setting, the orchestral setting, or the band setting, is without question one of the best ways to teach discipline, responsibility, team work, and self-esteem through performance.
Our program, while devoted strictly to the study of string instruments, also includes a variety of music history, music theory, and music appreciation activities. It is our goal that every student who experiences our program leaves Madras with a solid foundation on which successful musicianship may be built.
Madras Guitar is a year long course as part of a three year study. However, beginners at all levels are welcome to join based on director approval. Our home page will hopefully answer any questions you may have regarding class guidelines and expectations. We also hope that by using our homepage, you will be easily kept apprised of all upcoming events, announcements, and important information.
Thank you for visiting the Madras Guitar homepage!
