Music for Life provides after school guitar lessons for youth who otherwise do not have the opportunity; primarily low income. They were recently awarded United Way grants to expand their program in Arlington and Loudoun Counties in Virginia and Washington DC. They’re in the process of opening new class locations and are looking for volunteers to teach. Classes are for beginners and no prior teaching experience is required. Classes are on weeknights, once a week for an hour and usually start around 5 pm. You can learn more about them out at www.musicforlife.org.
New locations include Lubber Run Community Center, 300 North Park Drive, Arlington, VA 22203 on Mondays; Douglas Community Center, 405 E. Market St., Leesburg, VA 20176 on Wednesdays; Sterling Community Center, 120 Enterprise St., Sterling, VA 20164 (day/time to be determined); Lamond Rec Center, 20 Tuckerman St. NE, Washington DC 20011 (day/time to be determined); and Sherwood Rec Center, 640 10th St. NE, Washington DC 20002 (day/time to be determined).
