Like many kids, I wanted to be a guitar hero, jamming with friends and soaking up the spotlight.

Learning a musical instrument is far easier during childhood and First Act Discovery makes a series of high quality steel-string acoustic guitars sized just right (30″) for little hands. And at $30 these guitars are sized just right for your budget.

Interwoven into our lives, music creates a soundtrack that helps uplift and empower. Put an instrument into the hands of a child and watch her face light up.
