    Three St. Louis Public Schools (Soldan International Studies High School, Langston Middle School and Sherman Elementary) recently received guitars, complete with cases, foot stands, strings, and educational material, to enhance the classroom instrumental music offerings at that school thanks to the St. Louis Classical Guitar Society and its Public School Guitar Initiative. 

    The Public School Guitar Initiative was introduced in 2010 at Central Visual and Performing Arts, which received 20 guitars and accessories. In 2011 Gateway IT High School received 30 guitars and accessories, and in 2012 Lyon@Blow Academy received 40 guitars and accessories. The Society also offers the Student Matinee Performance Series, featuring Friday daytime performances with world-renowned musicians.
