    A huge thank you to Cox Charities, Guitar Center, and Broadmoore PTA!
    In 2015, I wrote a grant for a classroom set of guitars, and was ecstatic when Cox Charities selected my grant and funded my project in FULL! Guitar Center gave our school a hefty discount, and I was able to buy ANOTHER guitar! There is no question that Broadmoore has the absolute best PTA. With their support, I am able to keep extra strings in stock and keep up with maintenance and care of the guitars. 
     
    Our 6th graders enter a beginning guitar unit in the spring semester, as soon as we get back from break. Because the guitars stay in the classroom, there is only so much practice the students can have. This is a wonderful (and free!) way for our students to be exposed to the instrument, and I have had many students leave this unit with the foundation to teach themselves, take lessons, form bands, and even perform in our talent show!
