Welcome

 
TENOR GUITAR FOUNDATION
 
"Fostering musicianship four strings at a time"  - an Oregon non-profit.

The purpose of the TGF is as follows:

  • To manage, oversee and promote the Annual Tenor Guitar Gatherings in Astoria, Oregon
  • To secure a place in Astoria, Oregon to house the Tenor Guitar Hall of Fame
  • To investigate possibilities for building a Tenor Guitar Boat that could be used to draw attention to the Tenor Guitar Gatherings and other ventures related to the tenor guitar
  • To help maintain the Tenor Guitar Advisory Board and the Tenor Guitar Hall of Fame
  • To educate people about the tenor guitar via on-line workshops, film documentaries and the creation and promotion of a travelling Tenor Guitar Orchestra
  • To "gift" tenor guitars to young people, who are the future tenor guitarists of tomorrow, and to people of any age who would like to pursue the tenor but may not be able to afford an instrument

GOALS

We have expanded our goals for the year and would greatly appreciate those who cannot attend the gathering to become a TENOR GUITAR ANGEL by clicking the DONATE button to keep this informative website up, and for us to be able to "gift" some inexpensive tenor guitars to young children, the players of tomorrow, as well as those who would like to play, but cannot afford an instrument. With your help, we will be there for them, "Fostering Musicianship Four Strings at a Time!"

The Tenor Guitar Foundation is working on the finishing touches to the 7th Annual Tenor Guitar Gathering in Astoria, Oregon on May 26 - May 29, 2016.
