My Students

My students LOVE to learn music, are extremely talented and love to take advantage of any opportunity to perform! They all have the opportunities to join the choir, join the band, join the musical and enroll in classroom music. Some do it all and others pick and choose . Either way, guitar will excite, motivate and inspire my students to learn more about themselves!

Guitar will inspire and motivate my students to make a personal connection to the artform.

There are a lot of great students in our demographics and many of them would appreciate the opportunity to expand their musical experience through the guitar. Thank you for giving them this opportunity!

My Project

Guitars will be a medium in which students connect the arts with their daily lives. Guitars will engage the population that can show resistance to the typical music curriculum. Guitars will allow students to open their minds to the gift of music. Guitars will allows students to physically hold an instrument and feel the music.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to our students expose their musical potential, but also increase their academic achievement and ultimately lead to a more fulfilling life.

Music has been scientifically proven to increase learning in all areas and incorporating guitars will reach a larger number of students to feel successful.

Students will simply be more engaged, find a personal connection to the music and unveil a talent they may have not known they had otherwise. Put simply, your support will help our students enjoy a richer and more fulfilling life.
