The Jerome Dunn Academy kindly made this video for The Traveling Guitar Foundation because they wanted everyone to know how our donations of Schecter C-6 Deluxe Electric Guitars and our proprietary TGF 8 to 9 week guitar curriculum made a difference. We sincerely thank them for this wonderful testimony and hope to have more schools in the future benefit from our mission, to provide FREE musical equipment to schools in need.
The first program to get cut in most public schools is the music program. Music is a vibrant and expressive force which unlocks our creativity and transcends cultural barriers. Children who possess musical proficiency and knowledge of music theory have a greater chance of success in academic disciplines such as math and science. The Traveling Guitar Foundation believes that the rebuilding and fortification of schools’ music education programs is essential to the holistic development of current and future students.
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
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.
6 New Schools have been confirmed for Winter/Spring 2015 Session. But we have a plea from one additional school that would like our help! We have started a GoFUNDME Campaign to try and raise funds for any of the other applicants that have no funding. Check it out and hopefully you can help us raise funds for their wish list!

Since its inception in 2010 the Traveling Guitar Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has helped bring the love of music to more than 30,000 students in schools throughout the United States.
