Mission Inspires, trains and equips classroom teachers to integrate music and music making across the general studies curriculum through ``song-based learning`` so that all students from pre-school through high school have the opportunity to participate in and learn through making music in their regular classrooms each day.

What it does GITC brings music into public elementary and middle schools by offering regular classroom teachers free guitar, music education, song leadership, and music integration lessons through regionally based programs. Guitars in the Classroom jump starts regional programs by providing guitar and music education curriculum, guitars, guitar accessories, and ongoing guidance for GITC facilitators and instructors.
