Project Description

Lead Guitar provides rigorous music education to students in-need by establishing sustainable guitar programs in public schools with low arts access. Our Master Guitar Instructors use a proprietary curriculum to teach thousands of students and train dozens of teachers each year. Through Lead Guitar’s network of university partners, students build confidence during on-campus experiences and up-close encounters with touring artists and educators.

While we believe in the power of learning and making music for music’s sake, we understand that music and the mentorship and ancillary skills it brings can provide impetus for students to change their personal narrative, develop growth mind-set, and find additional pathways out of poverty. Lead Guitar participants not only experience the joy of music-making, they develop discipline, self-esteem, and teamwork skills–attributes that help them realize success throughout their lives–and connect with adults and peers around a positive common goal.
