“A lot of people tell teens it’s time to get off your phones and do something. What’s great about Guitar Mash is they actually give you something to do.”
Thank you to all the teens who attended our signature Urban Campfire in New York City on November 18th. Check out the gallery below including photos of them performing on stage and their session with artist Ani DiFranco.

Teen Acoustic Guitar Project
Bringing together a group of young guitarists, the Teen Acoustic Guitar Project (inspired by “The Acoustic Guitar Project”) passes one acoustic guitar from one musician to the next within New York City. After receiving the guitar, each teen has one week to write and record an original song using only the guitar and their voice. The project reinforces the Guitar Mash commitment to the communal and aims to bolster the community of teens making and sharing music together.
