“Performing with the Beatles project was one defining moments of my life and helped me realize my true passion for music and the performing arts.”

Justice Nelkin


The Beatles Guitar Project began in 2015 in Sacramento CA.  A group of Guitar Project Students were in class & it was suggested that we should learn all of the songs on the Sgt. Peppers record to perform at a recital planned for spring of 2016.  Sacramento Preparatory Music Academy opened its brand new facility in March of 2016, and performed all of Sgt. Peppers at Sac Prep’s debut recital, with a little help from our friends!
This was the first time we performed an entire Beatles record & we’ve been doing it ever since with a 40-piece rock orchestra.

The Beatles Guitar Project has performed, in their entirety:

  • 1965 Shea Stadium Set + The 1969 Rooftop Set 

  • Rubber Soul

  • Revolver

  • Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

  • The Beatles 1968 White Album

  • Magical Mystery Tour

  • Abbey Road

  • Many Beatles hits from Help, Hard Days Nights, and Meet the Beatles

  • Yellow Submarine, Rubber Soul, Please Please Me, & Beatles For Sale.

We’ve produced fantastic special events including: The 50th Anniversary of The Beatles White Album, as well as The 50th Anniversary of Abbey Road, and Anniversary performances of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band live in concert.
