Learning to play music can have a very powerful and positive effect on young people. High-quality instruments are in need for teens in schools and local organizations. Build-a-Guitar® was created and trademarked to serve this need. These guitar kits were specifically designed to provide a unique and exciting company event.

This worthwhile program incorporates iPads with engaging audio/video clues as well as fun challenges and activities, enabling teams to earn the parts necessary to assemble the guitars. Throughout the program, participants will be capturing photos and videos of each other in action.

After a fun icebreaker to get everybody rockin’, all groups will receive their iPads and instructions. As teams continually gain points through the iPad challenges, they will be rewarded with trips to our music store to obtain the parts needed. During assembly, periodic inspections will ensure the guitars are built to precise specifications.

In addition, teams will be decorating a special "white" guitar box for each guitar. Our Build-a-Guitar® kits also include a tuner, audio cable, the guitar strap, picks, and even a personal amplifier!

Once all guitars are built, don’t be surprised if a spontaneous jam session and photo op breaks out. So, let’s get rolling and build some guitars for future musicians of America, who will never forget your wonderful gift to their school or organization. At the conclusion of the program, a local charity or school representative will address your group and thank you for your donation.

To ensure the success of the experience, aspects of this event may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.

Clients Talk About this Program

As Salesforce employees, we are always looking for events to participate in for charity, and this is one they will talk about for a long time. Your lead facilitator was a great host, and our Build-a-Guitar event was perfectly organized. Answering music trivia questions was fun, as was doing the group videos and singing. The entire program was so fun, and it was great to see the team interacting and each one doing their part according to their strengths. Our group was still talking about this yesterday, and saying this was the "coolest" volunteer event they've ever participated in!

THANK YOU again so much for your time yesterday. All the attendees had a blast with the Build-a-Guitar activity. Both you and your staff were amazing! I hope to work with you again in the future. We can’t wait to get all the pictures and videos that were captured on the iPads so I can share with our clients.

When I contacted our national charity organizations, including the Boys and Girls Club, about what instruments are most needed for their music programs, they all said guitars! That turned out to be a real challenge, but I am thrilled to finally be able to add this cool program to our lineup of charitable CSR events. I say finally because the key was the guitar. You can’t build a DIY guitar in an hour because they need to be sanded, stained, coated and then assembled, which takes hours because it involves gluing necks, drilling holes, and soldering connections. So we hired a top guitar company to build us a guitar kit from scratch, with instructions, that could be assembled in an hour without all the steps mentioned above. They are excellent quality; one-of-a-kind guitar kits build exclusively for Best Corporate Events and they sound great! And each guitar comes with a strap, tuner, picks, and even an amplifier!
