“We want to see music be an implicit part of childhood because it brings in not just the learning but also joy and play” - Jessica Ann Baron
Guitars in the Classroom is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1998 and based in San Diego that provides free music integration classes for educators and school staff working with children of all ages in educational settings. Their mission is to transform education and promote student achievement and well-being through making music during and beyond the normal school day in general and music classrooms. Through partnerships with district Visual And Performing Arts (VAPA) departments, GITC is also working toward making guitar and ukulele a positive part of general music education. They believe that only music integration and music education together can supply students with a strong musical foundation for learning music, learning through music, and developing into musicians for life.
