Wow - what a valuable and much needed organization!! I met Barbara Gorin, VP of Fundraising at a music industry convention in LA and within about 10 mins. of talking to her about her organization, I was sold and committed to doing whatever I could to contribute. During the convention we ran into many famous musicians who loved this organizations mission as much as I did and they too committed to doing whatever they could to contribute to it's success. (for examples of this you can look on Barbara Goin's FB page - many pics of her with these musicians)

I have worked in the music industry for more than 2 decades and since the convention I have been in contact with many artists and industry people and all are very excited about and committed to working with this organization.

In my opinion, this organization has a very bright future ahead. They provide a very valuable and important service for those who otherwise would have zero access to this type of training. Not to mention, it gives these kids a chance to be inspired and a glimpse into a side of life they would never have the opportunity to see, let alone participate in if it weren't for this program. Inspiration and hope are two of the most valuable things one can experience and this organization provides both!!!

This organization understands that working with kids on a one-to-one basis with music is key to their empowerment. Each child accepted into the program receives a guitar to work with, and if they practice, they get to keep the guitar.
The screening process for the teachers is excellent and the
sessions are based in the child's neighborhood. Teachers maintain close relationships with guitar venues and do a good job of quietly recruiting new teachers to the organization.
