We provide guitars and lessons to foster children and at-risk youth in a classroom setting with qualified teachers as an alternative to violence.

About Our Program

Our program is for foster kids and at-risk youth for people ages 8-18 using high teacher-to-student ratios. Each class consists of a maximum of ten (10) students with three (3) adult instructors. The program is eight (8) weeks long with a weekly one-hour session. 

In addition to learning chords, the kids learn perseverance, discipline, and build self-esteem. The kids enjoy the fun, group setting.  

The kids who complete the full eight (8) week program keep the guitar and are invited to return for a second session of eight (8) week or more of advanced instruction.
