About Austin Classical Guitar

Austin Classical Guitar’s mission is to inspire individuals in the communities we serve through musical experiences of deep personal significance.

Austin Classical Guitar (ACG) is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to classical guitar in the United States. Founded in 1990, ACG currently presents close to 100 concerts annually through several diverse series, showcasing the world’s greatest guitarists along with local and regional talent, in performances reaching over 10,000 audience members each year. ACG also promotes lifelong learning in the arts through enrichment classes, adult community ensembles, the highly-acclaimed ACG Youth Orchestra, and beginning guitar classes.

At the heart of the organization’s mission is ACG Education, a program that was launched in 2001 in an effort to improve the quality of classroom-based guitar instruction in Austin schools. Seventeen years later, ACG’s education team is supporting for-credit guitar programs they have built in nearly 60 elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the Austin area, bringing high-quality, long-term arts education to nearly 4,000 students each week. The flexibility and comprehensiveness of ACG’s curriculum, which was published online in 2004 at GuitarCurriculum.com, has shown classical guitar to be a uniquely effective and engaging solution for under-resourced schools struggling to provide high-quality arts education for their students. Today, GuitarCurriculum.com and the teaching resources that accompany it are being used by hundreds of teachers throughout Texas and beyond, and ACG Education’s success in Austin schools is serving as a model for other communities around the world.
