String Together

Make Music Day

Free events to improve your guitar playing – no strings attached!

One of the best and easiest ways to improve the sound of your guitar is putting on a fresh set of strings.

Come to any participating String Together store on Make Music Day, June 21st, and attend a free string-changing session that comes with a free set of acoustic guitar strings from Elixir Strings (for the first 12 registrants at each store). All are welcome, from complete newbies who have never changed their strings, to more experienced players looking for a few tips from a pro guitar tech.

Find your nearest participating music store below, and RSVP to reserve your spot on June 21!
