    Does anyone know what kind of opportunities there are for guitar players at USMA? such as jazz band, guitar ensemble, etc?

    I havn't really seen any. I just keep mine under my bed. Cadets get together and jam, sometimes.

    Could a cadet start a club/organization such as a guitar/jazz band?

    Yes, nothing is stopping cadets from starting a club. I would venture to say that all non-mainstream clubs were made by a cadet. The hard part would be getting funding from DCA but if you just want a group of cadets with similar interests and are willing to take care of your own funding then it should be easy.

    It seems like I remember a cadet accompanied a contemporary praise song during worship at the Cadet Chapel in November.

    Haha I was wondering this same thing... I love my guitar, and that's something I don't want to leave behind!
    I hope that there are opportunities to be in bands and such, just as there would be at regular colleges... not necessarily school-oriented in any way, but just jamming with friends. :D

    I think there's a Jazz club here...other than that I haven't really seen or heard cadet run bands. Probably cuz there really is no place to actually play. I wondered about the same thing before I came here, but it probably really is only because there simply isn't anywhere to play without pissing people off. Maybe cadets play off-post? :p
