​​​About Us

Playing a Music Instrument just 30 minutes a day is enough to create a dramatic improvement

in a person's life... and Music for Veterans offers a fun, yet effective approach to addressing  Veterans service related issues and attaining some peace in their lives.

Playing a musical instrument provides many great benefits including:

* Improved self-image
* Reduced muscle tension
* Decreased anxiety & agitation
* Enhanced personal relationships

* Enhanced physical rehabilitation

* Increased communication skills 

Many service men & women suffer physical & emotional injuries or 
the effects of Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) leading to problems such as 
broken families, drug addiction, depression, homelessness and suicide. *

But even if they are not facing such issues, Veterans experience a

healthy environment of camaraderie at our weekly music sessions -

socializing and building friendships with fellow Veterans through music. 

​The program also allows Veterans to build confidence and demonstrate

the skills they've developed through live performances throughout the community. 
We partner with the VA, VFWs, American Legions, local sports teams and 
non-profits who invite us to participate in events and fundraisers.

​Many Vets are reluctant to seek help because they worry about 

the “stigma” of PTSD following them throughout their lives, making

it difficult to find a job and provide for their families.

​Veterans freely participate in the Music for Veterans because it's totally

confidential and no records are kept on their participation in our program. 

* ​Latest statistics from US Census Bureau, Office of the Deputy Adjutant General
for Veterans Affairs state that 6% of soldiers returning from war commit suicide.
