New Jersey Guitar & Music Society (NJGMS) is a public, non-profit 501c3 organization that promotes the education and appreciation of the guitar. NJGMS offers resources and activities for classroom educators and their students: mini performances, workshops, and classroom visits.



New Jersey Guitar & Music Society (NJGMS) is a 501c3 organization established in 2002 as a way to share appreciation of the guitar with the public. From 2002-2017 NJGMS was a community based organization hosting an array of concerts, clinics, lectures and social gatherings. Please visit our Archives page to learn more about our history and past activities.

In the fall of 2017, NJGMS transitioned to an education-based (advocacy) organization that ensures the guitar is part of a comprehensive music education program. We support teachers and their students with mini performances from guest artists, workshops, and classroom visits... grades K-college. If you are an educator looking for a way to enhance your guitar class/program, or just seeking advice, please contact us.
