About Us

At a time when the world stresses what divides us more than what unites us, our organization is focused on promoting the universal and unifying values that music represents in general and the classical guitar in particular.

Guitar Ascendant is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The specific purposes of the organization are to encourage public interest in classical guitar music, to help expand the repertoire and reach of the classical guitar, and to develop and promote new approaches in teaching the classical guitar.
