Creating a World of Music Making

We envision a world in which the joy of music making is a precious element of daily living for everyone; a world in which every child has a deep desire to learn music and a recognized right to be taught; and in which every adult is a passionate champion and defender of that right.

Help us bring the gift of music making into someone’s life by making a donation today.
