Texas Tapestry: Especially adaptable to Middle & High school History Study: “Texas Tapestry, a Musical Journey” traces the influences various groups have brought to Texas over a period of 500 years and the influence Texas musicians are now having on the rest of the world. The historical and geographically rich script was co-written by Madeline Myers and Christopher McGuire. Performers in the program are NEA National Heritage Fellowship Honoree, Jim “Texas Shorty” Chancellor; Winfield Banjo Champion, Gerald Jones; jazz and classical bassist George Anderson, and FWCGS Artistic Director Christopher McGuire.
The Allegro Guitar Quartet (AGQ) performs “From Ragas to Riches,”a program for Elementary school children that traces the plight of the Gitano (or Rom) people from northern India to Spain. The students hear musical influences the Gypsies carried with them and some they picked up along their way from India to Spain. All at once they receive lessons in music, history, various cultures and geography. We introduce students to the sitar, mandolin, hammered and mountain dulcimers, lute, violin and several kinds of guitars. AGQ performers are Gerald Jones, Polly Maynard, Christopher McGuire and Jan Ryberg.
Imagination Game & Career Day Outreach Programs: Christopher McGuire will inspire your students with stories of his childhood and how he came to realize he could do, “pretty much anything I saw another human doing as long as I was willing to practice.” Rather than merely showing students how they might become musicians, he shows them how, in our country, they can become anything they are willing to work for. He explains to them, “You are here in school to practice becoming the best you that you can be.”McGuire also includes his now famous group chant: “I’m exercising my brain – to have more FREEDOM!” It’s a celebration of the limitless possibilities of growing up and being educated in the United States of America.
PRIVATE & GROUP GUITAR INSTRUCTION: Additionally we provide private and group guitar instruction for adults and children in local schools and/or classroom settings & a Guitar Club.
