“I would like to personally thank you for your support for U.S. military members serving overseas. I also want to thank you for the guitars you sent to me and the soldiers. I cannot tell you how much these guitars are going to help build relationships between friends and allies.” 

Our Program

“Adaptive music is such a powerful tool for our soldiers to help improve those activities of daily living.  Learning new techniques of how to play an instrument, learning how to play the guitar, the chords, it helps my soldiers in so many different ways.”

“Guitars For The Troops is an excellent program. To me, music allows you to express creativity and allows you to put your emotions that you’re feeling aside, whether it’s good, bad, happy or sad. When you come back from deployment, a lot of these soldiers are going through tough times and music allows them to express their feelings, whether it’s writing lyrics or playing along on the guitar.”

Our Purpose


     The Harvest Guitar Troop Package, valued at over $600.00, contains everything a soldier needs to start playing guitar and enjoying the benefits of music therapy. Package includes a Harvest acoustic guitar, a soft case, shoulder strap, guitar strings, extra picks, and an instructional book with practice CDs.
