Guitars Over Guns is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that offers students from disadvantaged backgrounds a powerful combination of music education and mentorship with professional musicians to help them overcome hardship, find their voice and reach their potential as tomorrow’s leaders.
Guitars Over Guns Haven Studio
Haven Studio, located in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood, is Guitars Over Guns’ first community-based recording studio. In partnership with Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church, this unique program features no ordinary classroom. Instead, students have access to a fully equipped professional music studio, allowing them to use industry standard technology to develop original music and learn vital, career-track skills in music production and engineering.
With the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
