• The guitar program at Sutton, directed by Dr. Rob Pethel, is offered as an exploratory (rotation) course to all grades.  The course is open to all students.  A balanced approach is taken to accommodate all levels of experience, from the "guitar whiz", to the complete beginner, and everyone in between.  

    In this program, students are exposed to a wide range of musical styles while gaining fundamentals such as rhythmic development, proper technique, creativity, music literacy, teamwork, and discipline.  While students are encouraged to have their own guitar at home for practice, Sutton has a complete set of classroom instruments for student use.
