Music is the only true universal language. The transformative power of music is unparalleled. It unites continents and humans like no other medium. Yet access to music education for our most vulnerable communities continues to diminish.
Having early access to music education can transform the future of a great learner and affect the trajectory of their entire life. Apart from the subjective notion that music lifts the soul, it has been empirically shown that learners with the benefit of a musical training excel in other academic and creative domains. Yet so many of our brightest minds, those that can inspire future generations to improve our world, do not have access to a music education.
One Million Guitars, 1MG, is going to fix this dilemma, one guitar at a time. Over the next five years, 1MG will distribute more than one million guitars worldwide to children and leverage social media to create an online music academy and community of engaged, young learners.
These millions of kids will each be empowered by and granted a 1MG scholarship that includes a beautiful professional instrument built to last, online training by world renowned recording artists and professional musicians and access to local events and peer to peer training.
This all starts and ends with a kid with a guitar. Given the opportunity to surface the best version of themselves., millions of like minded children around the world will unite in a global chorus of personal growth, potential, diversity and peace.
Join us on this quest to bring the empowerment of music education into the lives of millions of kids.
