Grant A Guitar honors Grant Wilson's legacy by fueling a love of music in others - where it can do the greatest good.
A 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization
In the second year of Grant A Guitar, we are expanding our work in three important dimensions;
More schools; we are adding the Aurora school district to Chagrin Falls, Kenston, Orange, and Solon.
More grades: we are expanding the essay contest to include a seperate middle school track (across all five districts).
More ways to spread the love of music: we will be adding fully funded music instruction to our existing scholarship programs by partnering with established non-profit institutions in the greater Cleveland area.
The Grant A Guitar Scholarship is awarded each year to one or more deserving high school and middle school students to foster music appreciation and fluency – and, ultimately, to amplify the power that music has to improve our daily lives.
