Mana star Sergio Vallin building music school in Mexico

Latin rocker Sergio Vallin is building a music school in his Mexican hometown.

The Mana star is pouring his hard-earned money into the construction of the new guitar center in Aguascalientes with plans to offer lessons from leading musicians as visiting professors.

He tells Billboard.com, "These kids are hungry to play, so I want to give them a space with the best infrastructure and the best programs.

"I spent 10 years with another (charity) program, but now I'm going independent and launching what will be a school for guitar. The notion is to teach all styles: flamenco, jazz, blues, classical. And in addition to the classes at the school I want to bring to my city great musicians; not just guitarists, but great instrumentalists."
