music programs in North County elementary schools. Guitars in the classroom is an international non-profit organization that brings music to classrooms by providing guitars and instrumental instruction to teachers at no cost, allowing them to incorporate music in

their classes.

Each artist will be performing original works and arrangements of their favorite pieces. Each performer will donate tracks for a compilation CD, which will be available in the fall. If you would like to support these programs, visit support.
