Guitars in the Classroom (GITC)

mission:

GITC (or “git-see” for short) provides free music integration classes for educators and school staff working with children of all ages in educational settings. We show teachers how to make music, lead music for learning and how to write songs with students in order to enhance and deepen their learning experience in every subject area. Participants also learn how to select or create songs that fit into the lessons they plan to teach. Learning to sing and play guitar is a core part of the training and leading students in singing, songwriting are equally important. GITC classroom teachers also learn effective ways to arrange songs for satisfying musical participation. Integrating music helps students learn everything from English and math, to science, physical education, social studies, visual arts and more! Our headquarters are located in Encinitas, California. We hold teacher training programs around the country and these programs receive guidance from regional directors located in Vermont, Louisiana and Michigan.
