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!
“The entire MLK Elementary School community is revitalized and uplifted by the generous grant from The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation! Students, teachers and families can’t stop grinning from ear to ear. Thank you for investing in West Oakland young musicians!" Alison Streich, Music Teacher, Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary, Oakland CA
