During all of Giving Tuesday, we’ll be donating a percentage of sales to the “One Child, One Instrument” program, that focuses on teaching kids and teens from Latin America how to play orchestra instruments, as a way to broaden access to culture through musical learning.
Last year, we had the honor of sitting down and talking to vintage guitar expert George Gruhn - yes, Gruhn as in Gruhn Guitars. From NEVER having listened to a Clapton record (only in person, of course), to what snakes and insects have to do with guitars, to Baby Boomers’ effect on the guitar industry - here are some highlights of this epic trip down music history lane.
This Back to School season has been riddled with uncertainty and doubt. Melissa Salguero, one of the closest members of the Loog Community, knows this. The former Elementary School music teacher has just taken the leap into High School teaching this Fall, and is using music as a way to bridge the social and emotional gap this two-year sabbatical has caused.
We're super excited to launch the Loog Certified Educator Program - a 100% online program designed for educators looking into teaching kids Loog Guitar.
Since lockdown hit back in March, we started offering free guitar group lessons online, as a way to learn and connect. It's been our favorite thing we ever did at Loog: hundreds of kids playing, learning and jamming together... and giving their parents a well-deserved break :)
