Dean puts Guitars in Schools with Traveling Guitar Foundation
posted on 2010-11-08
New York, NY - Since being formed in 2009, the main focus of the Traveling Guitar Foundation (TGF) has been to shape the future of the music industry through children’s education. The Traveling Guitar Foundation donates instruments to schools whose music programs are endangered due to budget cuts.
The Traveling Guitar Foundation’s name derives from the “Traveler” which is a Dean Vendetta 4F donated to the foundation by TGF'S main sponsor Dean Guitars and then placed in the hands of famous guitarists, who play and sign them. The guitars are auctioned off at the end of the year and the proceeds help the foundation fulfill its mission.
TGF's mission is to provide assistance and support to instrumental music programs in our communities’ schools; helping to ensure that elementary, high school and college students have access to music education and musical instrument instruction throughout their educational journey.
Each time the TGF visits a school to make a donation, they put on a show to reinforce the benefits and joy of making music. In addition to young artists, who make a big impact on school children, TGF also brings along renowned music personalities to help deliver the message and the goods.
