Young Stars and Guitars
FROM THE STRINGS TO THE STAGE

Young Stars and Guitars is a live performance group from the Arlington, Texas, Mansfield, Texas and surrounding DFW area. These kids were brought up in the public and private school choral programs developing their vocal chops. Others had little or no background in music, however, through hard work, talent, and perseverance, they're making a way for themselves.

Young Stars are the kind of kids who go to school all day long, come home, strum through a few songs, get busy with homework, and then talk their Mom into driving them to the closest "open mic."

Jimmy Pitstick, a guitar teacher in Arlington, Texas, has found that there's a natural progression to their success. “First, you work hard at developing a style that is unique to your singing and playing ability.” The first performance is to play a song or two at the local sub shop for family and friends. Following this, it's downtown to where the true music listeners hang out at their favorite establishment. "It's here where we open for the main act, and when you have played enough of these to be comfortable, it's time to find that weekly gig at a place that will give you that much needed experience." From here it's on to the bigger performances at festivals in North Texas.
