SFSD and Pepper Entertainment “Amp Up” Guitar Program With Hellp from Local Music Celebrities

Beginning in Fall 2022, students at all four public high schools will benefit from a new partnership.  For the first time in recent history, the School District is offering a guitar class as part of its Fine Arts program.  The new course was announced this Spring and 145 students are currently enrolled.

Pepper Entertainment is “pitching” in to add sustainability and a bit of stardom to the course.  In conjunction with their newly formed, national Foundation, Pepper will donate $1.00 from each ticket sold from all Sioux Falls concerts promoted through the end of 2023.

President & CEO Jered Johnson remarks, “I’ve always wanted to create a charitable component to the Pepper brand. Having attended Sioux Falls Public Schools, I’m honored to participate in the program and help kids pursue their dream of music.”
