Rock 4 Recovery is a brand new non-profit for veterans of all ages, gender and service history. The mission is to provide a safe and comfortable area for veterans to express their feelings and thoughts through music. Music throughout the years has been found to have positive affects and healing abilities for soldiers with invisible wounds of war such as PTSD and TBI.
It is designed to provide the opportunity to experience music in many ways. A veteran can learn to play an instrument of his choice, write songs, read music, etc. Even if the veteran does not choose to play an instrument he can learn a vast amount of other information we offer. There will be music industry professionals from the entertainment industry that will be volunteering their time to teach and mentor. Veterans are also welcome to come listen to the music, relax and enjoy the friendship of his fellow soldiers.
We have received the attention of national artist and celebrities and some have enthusiastically volunteered to hold different clinics to show their appreciation and support of our veterans. The music room is located in a brand new 10k Sq Ft. facility near downtown Houston. The building is currently under renovations, with donated materials supplied by The Home Depot Foundation. The long term goal is to expand the program throughout the city and eventually nationwide.
