The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation keeps music alive in our schools by donating musical instruments to under-funded music programs, giving youngsters the many benefits of music education, helping them to be better students and inspiring creativity and expression through playing music.
We believe that kids thrive when given the chance to learn and play music. Putting an instrument into their hands improves the quality of their education and their lives. The window is brief and all kids deserve a chance to play music in school!
“Music is my life. I can confidently say that. My high school band isn’t the biggest, but we’re definitely one of the most dedicated. Our lives and futures are greatly impacted every day by music and the wonderful people who take the time to teach us what music really is. Throughout my life music has kept me going forward towards a brighter tomorrow."
