If you are a veteran with PTSD in Arizona and would like to participate in the G4V program please reach out to one of local chapter leaders:
West Valley, AZ
The West Valley, AZ Chapter of Guitars 4 Vets was founded in October 2017 by Adam McCray, a psychologist and Director of the West Valley Vet Center. Dr. McCray collaborated closely with Anthony Taddei and the G4V leadership team to create a new chapter to serve veterans who live in the western portion of the Phoenix metropolitan area and have difficulty traveling long distances to G4V lessons. In conjuction with the late Jolene Johnson, a retired music teacher who volunteered as the chapter’s first instructor, the first class of veterans graduated in December 2017. Since then, the West Valley chapter has welcomed Lee Partridge and Doug Peachey to G4V as guitar instructors. We offer both a Beginner’s group for those with very limited guitar experience and an Advanced Group for those who want to take their playing ability to the next level.
