“The Webber Family Foundation believed in us early on and supported a vision for a better foundational curriculum for school-based guitar education in America. Guitar is popular and affordable and, when taught with care, leads to the same skills development as any rigorous school-based music program like choir, orchestra, or band. With the help of the Webber Family Foundation we were literally able to lay the groundwork for the development of hundreds of new school programs across the nation engaging tens of thousands of kids in quality music instruction. Additionally, we have been able to allocate significant resources to bolster music programs where they were really needed including every Austin Title 1 Middle and High School, the Juvenile Justice System, and Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.”
