Music Education

The Foundation seeks partnership with school day music education programs, reaching every student, taught by high-quality teachers, outcomes-driven, and provide sequential instruction. It is our hope that every public school student has access to outstanding music instruction.

Music Therapy

Board certified music therapists innovate to provide therapeutic interventions for individuals challenged by a variety of diagnoses. Our goal is to partner with programs whose interventions have measurable impact on children’s and caregivers’ lives.
