Mission: Guitars For Vets (G4V) provides 6 free private lessons and a new acoustic guitar to Military Veterans at VA medical centers. The private lessons are then followed by group sessions that provide a forum in which community is fostered.
For those passionate about playing guitar and the healing power of music, Guitars for Vets is seeking volunteer guitar teachers. Commitment would be for 1 day or night per week (2-4 hours) at Hines VA Hospital. Patience and empathy are required of all potential instructors as this is far more important than previous experience.
Also accepting instructors for openings as we expand to other area VA Medical Centers - Chicago, Danville, Marion, North Chicago and Rockford.
Please respond with name, phone and best time to reach you.
GFV has chapters located in: Illinois, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Texas, Wisconsin and Iraq with California, Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma, and Afghanistan set to be active by mid-year. Currently, there are requests from over 50 VA Medical Centers throughout the nation. By raising the awareness of our organization's mission, we will be able to start up chapters faster to meet the growing demand. Please help us spread the word and in doing so, bring peace and joy to many.
