Every child benefits from singing- it's an essential and wonderful part of childhood. And it helps kids learn. But with no access to music at school and so much emphasis on testing, children are losing out and the music is being forgotten and lost. GITC saves the music by training teachers to lead songs for learning in all subjects each day! Singing together boosts imagination, learning, language skills, memory & makes school a place kids want to be each day.


Since 1998, Guitars in the Classroom (GITC) has been inspiring, training and equipping classroom teachers to integrate music making across the academic curriculum through "song-based instruction" so students of all ages have educational, musical access & opportunity at school every day. Our work prepares educators to lead music, employing it as a dynamic tool for reaching all learners, teaching all subjects, and building character, creativity and community.Programs & materials are free.
By training PK-8 teachers to lead music, you will bring music making & more effective learning to this generation & those to come. Students of all ages will gain the chance to engage enthusiastically in lessons in all subjects through singing lyrics for learning! REVERSE the negative impact of school budget cuts when you support 240 teachers to reach 27,000 students with music in 100 schools. Please make music a meaningful part of education each day so children can achieve their goals & dreams.

Long-Term Impact

This work instills life-long love of learning & success and music! It imparts a permanent solution because teachers train and keep playing for years at school. All children are reached, including those in Title 1 and public school classrooms- GITC creates precious musical opportunities for everyone. This approach makes classrooms happier places, enables students to bring up their grades and test scores, schools get stronger, and teachers acquire an inspiring new way to do their best!
