Challenge

Hurricanes and economic issues have hit the Gulf Coast hard and schools are feeling the pain. Their musical instruments in many cases were destroyed, school buildings too, and dollars are scarce. The arts are a way for people to overcome their suffering and embrace life, but art programs need funding they simply do not have. Even in cities not directly effected by Katrina and Rita, many have absorbed people made homeless or jobless and their schools are affected. Music always helps!

Solution

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.
You can change lives through music when you make a donation to Guitars in the Classroom. Every teacher who receives free training in music with us gives this powerful gift to students now and for years to come, opening the door to learning, creativity, and happiness for children. Every teacher trained reaches approximately 99 students with free music making each week, and each program trains up to 24 teachers. Your gift will brighten life and learning for hundreds.

Long-Term Impact

Children will do better in school, like and remember what they have learned in song, and will go on to share their musicality throughout their lives.
