The Power of Music
Over the years, GNG founder Ray Nelson has witnessed first-hand the
impact his program has had over young lives. “The changes are like day and
night. The music gives the kids something to focus on, and when they start
focusing, they do better in school."
Recalling one such success story Nelson says, “We had one boy named Daniel who didn’t really like himself, but he started taking lessons. He took to it like a duck to water and got a lot of one-on-one time. He ended up starting a teen band and it turned him around.” Another success story is that of a shy, 10-year-old boy who entered a talent contest at his elementary school about six months after he started taking lessons and took home first place. “I’m sure some of these kids will go on to make a name for themselves as guitarists.”
