Soldier Songs & Voices is a service organization that provides free guitar instruction and song writing assistance to all military veterans at no cost. For those who do not own a guitar one may be provided.

Due to Covid 19 we have changed our format. Now thanks to video conferencing technology and dedicated volunteers, Soldier Songs & Voices PDX continues to offer free guitar lessons and song writing workshops.

Currently, we meet on Zoom, Sunday afternoons from 2:00-4:00. I invite you to participate in a workshop to see and hear what we do. Please contact me so I can send the appropriate information to login to a workshop. We will resume live workshops when it is safe.

You can learn more about us online. The Soldier Songs & Voices website is and you can find us on Facebook at
