Lifelong Learning

Making Music. Making Joy. Together.

We believe participation in music and the arts should be a joyful, lifelong endeavor for everyone. Making music with others is one of the most powerful ways to connect with one another, and provides an opportunity to create something collectively that is beautiful, refined, and ready for public performance!

The renown ACG Youth Ensembles bring together passionate young guitarists from all over our city to collaborate, refine, and share unforgettable musical experiences.

The ACG Community Ensembles offer a welcoming environment for adults to make music with others who share your passion!

Each year ACG hosts an ensemble composition competition for composers to showcase their work. Winning compositions are premiered every year at our annual ACG Fest.

ACG Fest is two days filled with performing, listening, and laughter to celebrate the joys of making music together.

Austinites have the privilege of sharing the same city as the renowned Butler School of Music at UT Austin. The students of Professor Adam Holzman’s Guitar studio regularly perform and host master classes. These events are free to the public. Check here for a calendar of the Butler School of Music’s upcoming event!
