|WE SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY
STRUM TOGETHER, The Pittsburgh Guitars
Musical Education Scholarship Fund
On June 30, 2012, at Big Beatles Show #10, we announced the creation of STRUM TOGETHER, The Pittsburgh Guitars Musical Education Scholarship Fund, founded to assist us in giving back to the community that is so supportive of our store.
The fund supports a music outreach program that awards guitar scholarships for lessons here at Pittsburgh Guitars, with the goal of teaching and/or enhancing students' basic knowledge and understanding of the guitar. Some of the winners will be kids who would not have otherwise have the opportunity to take lessons. Our longer-term goals include providing instruments, lesson books, and accessories to students, and reaching as many future young musicians as possible.
