Learning to play a musical instrument provides a peaceful retreat from 

the pressures facing Veterans after returning to civilian life. 

The therapeutic outcomes of playing a musical instrument include: 
* Improved Self Image  * Increased Motivation  * Reduced Muscle Tension  

* Better Communication Skills  * Improved Emotional Release 

* Increased Verbalization Skills  * Decreased Anxiety & Agitation  

* Enhanced Physical Rehabilitation  * Enhanced Personal Relationships

current participant studies please refer to our program results page!

a Music For Veteran's group in your local area? 

Contact us to start a program in your local community!

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.

Weekly group music sessions are Free

to all Veterans and Military Personnel.

11AM to 12:30PM  
Location: Veterans Center 

240 West 11th Street 

Tuesdays Sessions

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.
