Guitars not Guns is one of the truly great nonprofits. It targets the most disadvantaged, damaged, and vulnerable children in the communities it serves such as; foster children, children who been in detention, and children can't function in regular schools. It is an after school music program that is free and provided entirely by volunteer teachers. In fact, the whole organization is volunteer. The children are lonely guitar in giving eight weeks of lessons. If after that period of time they've learned six chords and name the parts of the guitar they get a brand-new Yamaha guitar. But much more important, is that once they become involved with the music they undergo an amazing transformation. They become focused, able to concentrate and no longer disruptive. They are living proof that music heals.
