Newnan Police Department's Guitars Not Guns Charter
WE PROVIDE GUITARS AND LESSONS TO FOSTER CHILDREN AND AT-RISK YOUTH IN A CLASSROOM SETTING WITH QUALIFIED TEACHERS AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO VIOLENCE.
How our program works:
Our program is targeted to foster kids and at-risk youth ages 8-18 using high teacher-to-student ratios. Each class consists of a maximum of 10 students with three adult instructors. Each program is 8 weeks long with a one-hour session each week.
In addition to learning how to master changing from one chord to another, children learn perseverance & discipline and build self-esteem. More importantly, the kids learn to enjoy the interaction and have fun in a group setting.
Those kids who complete the full 8-week program have earned the right to maybe keep the guitar and are invited to return for a second 8-week session of more advanced instruction. They've earned it!
