A School without Music? It’s hard to imagine a childhood without music. Imagine young schoolchildren singing and dancing in a circle, giggling and exuding sheer joy. Music helps children develop coordination, goal-setting and concentration. Plus, there is a full body of research showing that kids who are actively involved in music are better at reading, math and science. Read Full Press Release, click here.
TGF was chosen to be the subject for Seton Hall University's (South Orange, NJ) Public Relations Course. Each student was asked complete the course with their version of a PR Campaign designed specifically for the Traveling Guitar Foundation. Some of the reports and concepts were quite amazing, but we had to choose one that truly stood out among the rest - we chose Amanda Boyer's idea as the winner.
During the ROPE/Alumni Event held on April 10th, our founder .--Damon Marks (Damon Marks Official) presented Amanda with her very own ESP Guitar! Amanda has a bright future ahead - and maybe one day she will be our very own PRM! Check out the photos to the right.
