The Sacramento Guitar Society is proud to have received a grant from the California Arts Council for their Veterans in Arts grant program.
This program aims to EXTEND the services of another nonprofit organizations, Guitars4Vets. They offer a 10-week program with one-on-one guitar lessons to Veterans in our community who have been referred by the VA mental health professionals. Once they complete that program, the Veterans are offered private lesson vouchers, redeemable by presenting to a guitar teacher who is a member of the Sacramento Guitar Society. In addition to private lessons, the Veterans are invited to join the Sacramento Community Guitar Orchestra, or the Davis Community Orchestra, another free service made available with funding by our members and donors.
With this program, the Sacramento Guitar Society offers our Veterans an opportunity to re-engage in our communities to form friendships as they develop their musical journey.
