Founder, Stuart Epstein, has been a musician for most of his adult life. In 2017 he started volunteering, singing and playing his guitar at an elementary school for children with special needs, senior care facilities and healthcare centers. Performing for these exceptional groups of people changed his life. For the first time he felt his music was having a significant impact on his audiences. It became his way of giving back and he was seeing positive changes happen everywhere he played. It quickly became apparent there was a big community need for this type of musical experience. Stuart knew that he could reach many more lives if he made this bigger than just one person and Six Strings Acoustic, Inc. was born.
