Music for Veterans provides an opportunity for social interactions through playing a musical instrument with other Veterans who may be facing the same issues of reintegrating into civilian life.

If a participant does not have a musical instrument, Music For Veterans provides one FREE-OF-CHARGE! Veterans are asked to make a commitment to attending sessions for a period of one year. The instrument is on loan to the Veteran, but if they participate in the classes for the full year, the instrument becomes theirs.
If a Veteran is interested in playing music at any of our scheduled community events they are welcomed to join us!
Check out our upcoming and past performances on our Facebook page.
Our services are available at no cost to Veterans, so we depend on contributions from people like you who see the value of this program that helps bring our Veterans together in a peaceful and creative atmosphere of Music and Camaraderie!
