It’s 2018, and here at Guitars Over Guns, we’re looking back on 10 incredible years of making music and changing lives.

Way back in 2008, our very first program was launched at North Miami Middle School. We partnered with Communities In Schools of Miami to begin offering no-cost music instruction and mentorship to NMMS students.

Right away, it was clear that something magical was taking place. Little did we know, however, that this one little program at one local middle school would ultimately grow into a 10-year journey reaching more than 3,000 youth in Miami and Chicago!

We couldn’t be more proud and grateful to be celebrating this milestone anniversary and reflecting on the impact our programs have had on our community’s most deserving youth. Here’s to another 10 years!
