HOUSTON INSTRUMENT DRIVE

September 14 – October 1

SUPPORT THE HOUSTON INSTRUMENT DRIVE TO BENEFIT HOUSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS!

Do you have a previously well-loved instrument that no longer gets the attention it deserves? Play it forward by donating your instrument!


The CMA Foundation and The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation are hosting a citywide instrument drive that will benefit school music programs and their students. Round up those lonely instruments resting in your closet or garage, and put them in the hands of deserving kids who will truly enjoy bringing the music back to life. We have convenient drop-off times and locations throughout the greater Houston area. Thank you for helping students experience the joy of music-making with your generous donation to the Houston Instrument Drive!
