I've been a piano teacher for many years. What Damon Marks has done with Traveling Guitar in giving music, is truly a wonderful charity.

As a teacher in the public school system, I understand the importance of keeping our music curriculum alive especially when the focus lately seems to be only on academics. Seeing the Traveling Guitar foundation in action left me speechless. Damon's energy and passion in what he does was clearly visible in his presentation. The smiles and the excitement of the students were contagious. They were clearly thrilled with being able to "Jam" with great musicians and use their new gifted guitars. These students would probably never have the opportunity to explore this if it wasn't for the great work of The Traveling Guitar Foundation. It's truly a gift to our kids and schools! Thank you Damon for the wonderful work and joy you bring to our kids!
