I was finally given the opportunity to see the Traveling Guitar Foundation in person. This non profit has donated guitars and percussion and a detailed curriculum to many other schools in this school district. The assembly they put on for the students is above and beyond what I expected. The interaction with the students during the performance is inspiring. The musical equipment that they donate to the schools are as professional as can be. Damon Marks is a great motivational speaker and musician all around, and the talent he brings along with the foundation are very professional in all ways. I hope to see this foundation around for a very long time..

The Traveling Guitar Foundation is a wonderful organization. Damon Marks and his team presented a full-on rock concert to our packed auditorium of 1000+ high school students and kids were thrilled. How often do they get treated to a full concert like this? Really, hardly ever! Add to this the gift of guitars and equipment, the start of our contemporay music/"School of Rock" program, and you have an impact from TGF that will make a difference for years to come!

The Traveling Guitar Foundation is an amazing program. It brings music to the schools in a way that is unique and amazing. The concept and the delivery is amazing. Arts and music are being cut from programs. Music is something we must keep in the schools. The Traveling Guitar Foundation does this. I have watched Founder Damon Marks firsthand deliver the program to the schools. The children love the program. It draws them in and keeps them interested.
