A Division of the South Carolina Music Teachers Association (SCMEA)



In 2017, classroom guitar teachers across the state of South Carolina began dreaming about our programs coming together for a single purpose. We sought and seek to create experiences for young guitarist in middle and high school guitar programs across the state of South Carolina. In 2018, the South Carolina Music Educators Association (SCMEA), in conjunction with the National Association for Music Educators (NAfME) officially recognized Guitar as a Division. We are honored to work along side fine teachers in our division as well as glean from the wealth of experience from other Divisions such as Band, Choral, and Orchestra. If you are a guitar teacher please take a moment to leave us your information so we can send you information about how you can get involved. In mean time we hope you will consider attending Guitarfest or participating in our All State Auditions and Ensemble.

Acoustic Guitar



South Caroline is fortunate to be among the growing number of states that offer an All State Ensemble for guitar.

Guitar Strumming


This event is designed to provide a unique opportunity for middle and high school guitar students to learn guitar from the best teachers our state has to offer. Students gather for a half day event that includes clinicians, master classes, ensemble rehearsals, and an evening performance. They rehearse, learn, and showcase the culmination of their hard work.
