Rock It Forward!

On September 15, 2013, in News, by Magnolia Guitar

As you may know, a fundamental part of Magnolia Guitar has always been helping our local community through the power of music. Together through my SIX for SIX program you’ve helped give hundreds of young people the opportunity to love performing music simply by taking lessons yourselves. We were able to achieve this through our good friends at Guitars Not Guns.

On September 14, 2013, Guitars Not Guns of the National Capital Area (GNGNCA) announced that it will discontinue their affiliation with the national Guitars Not Guns organization (GNG) and will change its name to Music For Life.

This change will allow Music For Life the flexibility to broaden the scope of what they teach to continue to grow and serve the needs of the youth of the Washington DC metropolitan area.

While I have supported GNGNCA for years — and will continue to do so — I will be taking this opportunity to redesign Magnolia Guitar’s own charitable program to expand our reach to other music-based organizations that also need our help.

The new program is called ROCK IT FORWARD! and will replace SIX for SIX. In the spirit of the movie Pay It Forward, when students take guitar lessons at Magnolia Guitar, a portion of your lesson fee is set aside to contribute to local music-based youth organizations like Music for Life, Girls Rock! DC and others.

Thank you for entrusting Magnolia Guitar with your music education and making community service a priority at the same time. Let’s ROCK IT FORWARD together!
