Making a difference in the future of music education in our schools!
Can you imagine life without music? On a basic level, music brings a sense of joy,
imagination, and historical continuity into our daily lives.
However, music is also a vibrant and expressive force which unlocks our creativity
and transcends cultural barriers. Moreover, music functions as a structured
language. Those who possess musical proficiency and knowledge of music theory
have a greater chance of success in academic disciplines such as math and science.
As such, we believe that the rebuilding and fortification of schools’ music
education programs is essential to the holistic development of current and
Founded in 2010 by guitarist/songwriter Damon Marks, the Traveling Guitar Foundation
is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides musical equipment and support
for school systems across the United States that are struggling to finance their
music education programs. Through our efforts, we work to ensure that the equipment
we donate is used regularly and properly for the betterment of students’ educational,
artistic, and social development. In so doing, we hope to catalyze students’
creativity, foster their intellectual growth, and expose them to the joys that
music can bring.
Today’s economic crises and public education cutbacks jeopardize these essential programs.
With the help and generosity of corporate sponsors, music industry personnel, and individuals like you, we can continue our mission.
