Guitar Arts Academy is proud to sponsor the CSU Bakersfield Guitar Arts Series this season! Click HERE to read about the four exciting guitar events coming to Bakersfield this season!
This instruction studio is the brain child of Jim Scully and Roger Cope.

Scully is a jazz guitarist who has resided in Bakersfield since 1986 and is currently a full-time lecturer at CSU Bakersfield and Cope is a classical guitarist and instructor at CSU Bakersfield and Bakersfield College.

Scully and Cope bring over 40 years of professional instruction with them into this Academy, including over 30 years of collegiate music instruction at universities throughout California and the United States. This experience gives them a keen insight into what a young guitarist needs to facilitate success - and the mission of the Academy is to provide instruction to help ensure those needs be met.

The curricula focuses on posture, building strong right and left hand technique while focusing on repetitive injury avoidance, becoming a more independent musician, and working collaboratively with peers to increase musical expression.
