Heroes’ Voices helps veterans build confidence and community by connecting them with the power of music. Veterans raise their voices together in song with our free music workshops, free online guitar lessons, and on-line resources. Launched in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are expanding throughout the USA.
Heroes’ Voices puts the transformational power of music to work for our veterans by:
- Creating opportunities for veterans to engage with music.
- Building alliances with other veterans organizations to expand the use of music in their programs.
- Connecting veterans to music and to their communities with an online database of art and music organizations.
- Promoting and sponsoring research into music therapy for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
Focusing my life towards music is the only way that I am able to turn those war-time experiences into something positive, so that I can give back to my fellow man. I have a unique view on the power of music and what it can do to heal a person’s soul after experiencing tragedy in their life. I believe in the mission of Heroes’ Voices with every fiber of my being, and will be happy to lend my advice and support in any way that I can.
