Mission Statement


Guitar San Antonio is a non-profit arts organization bringing quality guitar music and guitar education to San Antonio, TX and the surrounding area.


Friends,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official guitarsanantonio.org website! My name is Jake Ramirez and I am the President & founder of the Guitar San Antonio organization. I started this non-profit arts organization during the summer of 2013 in order to bring high quality guitar concert experiences and guitar education to the people of the Alamo City. There are thousands of music lovers, aspiring guitarists, guitar enthusiasts, students, arts lovers, and live music fans that have been enjoying events like ours around U.S. and abroad for decades. This year San Antonio, the 7th largest city in the U.S., will finally have a guitar arts organization to support and represent the diverse population of the San Antonio area!



Take a minute to a look around our new website and learn about all the events, classes, and other programs we have planned for the 2013-14 season. Make sure to read about our exciting concert events in the International Artist, Downtown, and Guitar After Dark series of concerts, I promise there will be a concert to satisfy almost every musical palate! Being a non-profit arts organization focusing on education in the State of Texas, Guitar San Antonio is committed to supporting music education in San Antonio and the rest of the Lone Star State. In order to accomplish our mission of bringing quality guitar education to large student population of San Antonio, I have created The Aranjuez Outreach Series, an educational outreach program that brings the best up-and-coming artists and teachers of the guitar world to teach at the various public and private schools, colleges and universities, and music academies around the SA area. In order to support our educational mission for years to come, The Manuel C. Ramirez Foundation for Guitar Education has created the Guitar SA “Friends of the Guitar” Scholarship program for all aspiring Texas-based students of the nylon-string classic guitar, ages 30 and under. Read more about the Foundation and apply for a scholarship here.


During this exciting time for our organization, I would like to personally invite you to become a member of the Guitar SA "Founders Circle," where the first 100 members of the Guitar SA organization receive exclusive benefits including free choice seating tickets, autographed merchandise from our artists, access to presale tickets, and more, for as long as they choose to be members! All the usual membership “Perks” (including Guitar SA TV and access to our library of exclusive in-depth teaching videos, more here) are included in the “Founders Circle” membership. Guitar SA Membership is open to guitarists, guitar enthusiasts, students, music fans, and all else who support the Guitar San Antonio mission. Membership is open to citizens of all nations, of any age. Join Us today! I hope to see all of you during our first concert event featuring Dr. Silviu Ciulei with special guest Stephen Lochbaum live at the Pearl Studio on Nov. 4th! Until then, enjoy guitarsanantonio.org!

Sincerely,
Jake Ramirez, M.M.
