William Hammond: HOOK Student Guitars

HOOK Student Guitars

William Hammond

Hook Student Guitars attempt to reimagine the way that we teach, learn, and play music in public spaces. Developed in response to the defunding of arts in our public-school system, HOOK guitars have been designed to be more durable, more cost effective, and more easily storable than traditional wooden instruments. These guitars can be purchased by an organization, and then checked out by students via a corresponding guitar pick, a system that promotes communal learning and growth without posing a long-term cost to the institution.
