Guitars in the Classroom
October 1, 2011

GITC is amazing. Every year, the education bureaucracy cuts the arts to make room for tested subjects--completely overlooking the substantial research that arts and MUSIC integration enhances learning and student achievement. GITC makes it possible for thousands of classrooms to be vibrant, musical, collaborative learning communities--bound in song. Aristotle said that music is vital because it makes the mind ready for other kinds of learning. So right.

Well done, Jessica Baron and company. Well done.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've taught almost 60 teachers with the GITC curriculum.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide a lifetime funding stream. A guitar for every classroom!
