ORGANIZATION: Guitars Not Guns



ATTN. SONOMA COUNTY GUITARISTS: Are you interested in becoming a volunteer Guitar Instructor for the nonprofit Guitars Not Guns? We help protect at-risk childrens' lives through the joy of music!

The new Sonoma Chapter of Guitars Not Guns will operate closely with the Marin chapter to help deliver on the mission of this nationwide organization which has been around for over 24 years. We provide free guitar lessons and free instruments to at-risk youth in a classroom setting of up to 20-25 students, as a healthy alternative to drugs and violence, and to help them build self-confidence. We have open positions 3 Guitar Instructors. The goal is to begin our first 8-week course at the Rohnert Park Regional Library in August as school begins. Dates are the eight contiguous Tuesdays from Aug 20th through Tue Oct. 8th.

Even if you can only make a partial commitment, I encourage you to step forward because I can pick up the slack as we build momentum.



GUITAR INSTRUCTORS:

Focusing on Sonoma county, occasionally assisting Marin County: Help teach classes of up to approximately 20-25 kids along with 4-5 other instructors to help tune guitars, guide the kids on fingering their chords and getting a nice tone out of their instruments, and provide extra assistance to those kids needing extra attention. You don't need to attend every single class, as we have a pool of instructors.
