In the 2019/2020 school year, 1,308 instruments and 728 accessories, such as mouthpieces, chairs, and instrument racks were donated to 49 schools and two districts across the nation. Due to Covid-19 related school closures, several donations were suspended, but we’re ready to resume donations as soon as students start playing again.

“A former 8th grader at Copper King was so grateful and proud to have a brand new bass to play this school year. She tirelessly carried it back and forth to school and practiced more regularly than many other students who had instruments much easier to carry home. She is planning to continue playing in orchestra when she goes to high school next year.” Amy Ziegenhorn, Music Teacher, Copper King Elementary School, Phoenix, AZ
“I cannot thank you enough for awarding MS 244’s band program this generous gift! These instruments will immediately be put into the hands of our passionate and deserving students, who make being a band director a joy every day. We are so grateful for new instruments that will benefit so many young Bronx musicians in the years to come.” Mary Kate Mutze, Band Director, MS 244 – New School for Leadership and the Arts, Bronx NY
