The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation keeps music alive in our schools by donating musical instruments to under-funded music programs, and vital support services to school districts nationwide, giving economically-disadvantaged youth access to the many benefits of music education, leading them to success in school, and inspiring creativity and expression through playing music.

The Foundation sees that students from low-income circumstances, whose parents can’t afford to rent or buy instruments for them, are given an opportunity to play music in school. By offering school districts extra support and schools the instruments they need, all children will have access to music education and the joy of learning to play an instrument.
