Item Description

About 78% of teachers who train with GITC are working in schools dubbed "Title I" meaning that more than half of the students qualify for free lunches and are considered "underserved" and "at risk." Help GITC fund a program in Brooklyn, Boston, Oakland, Tucson, Los Angeles, San Diego, or Chicago with your gift for the Title 1 GITC programs in our big cities.

Item Special Note

Proceeds raised from the sale of this item will go to support Guitars in the Classroom's free teacher training programs. Our mission is to transform pre-k through high school classrooms by training teachers to integrate musical learning in lessons in order to increase student engagement, employ oral language practice, and promote student achievement across the academic curriculum.  In our free workshops, teachers learn to sing with confidence, play guitar, lead songs, and to select, teach, and facilitate the student writing of educational songs. This daily integration of music with academic learning provides positive, inspiring musical access for all students as part of the regular school day.
