Founded in 2007 by guitar instructor and his student- a Vietnam Marine
The men realized that guitar and lessons were a catalyst for a positive human
interaction and joy where it had once been lost
Guitar and lessons are provided at no cost to injured US Military Veterans
Ten private lessons are shared on practice guitars Donated by local community
Upon Completion, the Veteran/student is awarded a brand new acoustic and accessories
Th2 Veterans continue this journey as long as they desire with weekly group lessons and Jam sessions.
Playing Guitar opens up windows of serenity as it is meditation in motion
