Holiday Group

Christmas 2017 at Courthouse.jpgWe had a lot of fun this year performing holiday music around the community. At the lighting of the Blanco Courthouse we performed upstairs with Santa Clause! It was so much fun playing Christmas music and watching the kids sit on Santa’s lap. We also enjoyed playing at the Christmas Market days on the square, the Henry House, and at the Red Bud Cafe. Great job to all the students and special thanks to our voice instructor Julie Prejean.

Trevor McGuire is as much about music as he is education. Bringing the energy of rock and blues to the discipline of classical guitar, he has made a life out of living and giving the gift of music. Performing in classical duets, trios and ensembles as well as rock bands like Eden’s Debris, Trevor’s greatest musical contribution now comes through his work in Blanco, Texas as owner and administrator of the Hill Country Sound Situation.
