‘Guitars Not Guns’ Uses Music to Bring Positive Change to Children in DC (& Beyond)


Guitars Not Guns is an organization that provides free guitar classes, guitars and youth mentorship for students in underserved communities throughout Washington, DC and other cities in the country.

Recently, they were able to raise enough money from recent events (including one that went down at Mellow Mushroom and featured harp guitarist Muriel Anderson) to keep classes going through Fall of this year. They were also able to use donated proceeds to refurbish/purchase new guitars, stands, strings, guitar cases, books and more.

Tomorrow (Wednesday, May 30th), Guitars Not Guns will have a ceremony for their fourth graduation class — that goes down at JC Nalle Elementary at 6pm.
