    Rock to Recovery

    Will Nephew of Rock to Recovery coaches songwriters and musicians who collaborate with each other. It’s all about harnessing the healing energy of music through composing, playing as a band, and recording. Have fun expressing yourself, working as a group, and experiencing the natural high only music can produce. Maybe your song will be performed in one of our U.S. Tour of Duty variety shows! FREE for everyone. No experience necessary. More info: 213.375.4150 and http://ustourofduty.org.

    The U.S. Tour of Duty is part of a cultural revival led by civic-minded military veterans and their allies. We develop the artistic abilities and creative expression of veterans, and nurture relationships between veterans and the general public for the greater good. FREE video production, dance, theater and music workshops are held at the Villages at Cabrillo in Long Beach, the Main Library in Long Beach, and The Vortex in Los Angeles. A blueprint for nationwide deployment is now in development.
