In loving memory of Richard Smith (December 20, 1950-August 27th, 2020)

Soldier Songs and Voices is a non-profit organization that provides instruments and songwriting lessons free of charge to armed forces veterans as a form of post-conflict care.

We typically meet in music venues weekly or bi-monthly, in sessions led by professional musicians. The act of learning an instrument and the art of songwriting have been proven to rebuild damaged synaptic pathways from traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress. 

We are committed to providing veterans with tools to turn their stories into songs so that their voices can be heard.
