Guitar in El Paso

Vanity Fair has called El Paso “The Best Little Music City in Texas.” The local music scene has a rich history, and with musical influences from just over the border to the south, the El Paso sound is a unique blend of cultures, styles, and genres.

As a guitarist, your instrument is in demand! If you’re taking guitar lessons in El Paso, you have many opportunities to continue your studies outside of the studio. Listening to other players and networking are important parts of a thorough musical life. So, let’s explore some of what the city has to offer to the up-and-coming guitar student.

Listening to live music is a great way to gain an understanding of the possibilities of your instrument outside your guitar lessons in El Paso. The city offers music lovers the opportunity to hear all genres of music every night, including jazz, rock, pop, and Tejano music.

Speaking Rock Entertainment Center

Rock is a mainstay of the El Paso scene. Whether it’s local bands playing original music, or the best tribute acts in the South, they all have a home at the Speaking Rock Entertainment Center. This venue is home to several stages that feature the best tribute bands and local rock artists.

King's X

Another great venue for live blues, original rock, and Latin music is King’s X. A big supporter of the local scene, King’s X features jam sessions every Wednesday night and they alternate between blues jams (on the first and third Wednesdays) and straight up rock-and-roll jams (second and fourth Wednesdays). If you want to show your stuff after your guitar lessons in El Paso, stop by King’s X on a Wednesday night to get your jam on! Thursdays feature salsa, bachata, and merengue dancing to live Latin music, and, on Sunday nights, the best local and national blues artists grace the stage!

The Black Orchid

If your musical taste runs toward jazz, El Paso is home to several clubs that feature live jazz music. One of these is The Black Orchid Lounge. This modern speakeasy has a unique atmosphere, and it compliments the live jazz bands that it features.

Music Festivals and Local Colleges

With its moderate climate, El Paso hosts music festivals year round. Festivals are a great way to spend a day or a weekend, checking out amazing guitarists. Additionally, the El Paso Conservatory and UT El Paso both offer extensive music schedules, featuring performances by both music students and faculty.
