It is our belief that every child should be able to experience both the joy and the tangible benefits of owning a musical instrument, regardless of his or her ability to purchase one.

With millions of unused guitars collecting dust and millions of kids unable to purchase a guitar, research shows that putting guitars in the hands of these kids will radically improve their cognitive, creative, and mental focus and give them a better chance to lead a productive and successful life.


At FG4K, we not only believe music is one of the greatest gifts we’ve been given, but also that the opportunity to play, compose or perform songs is one that every child should be afforded; and it is our goal to do just that!  

We have a vision for the future that includes taking our work international.
