From businesses, schools, civic groups, places of worship, associations and clubs...Wherever there is a collection of passionate individuals who want to help give youth access to music education, there is a Play It Forward Instrument Drive ready to be launched!

3.) Backstage Class® music-based field trips expose youth to “the other side of music education,” through once in a lifetime opportunities to experience music in unique and impactful ways. The goal of Backstage Class field trips is to inspire youth to think differently about career opportunities available to them through the appreciation of music and culture.

Mission:
Providing youth access to music education.
Results:
We are on track to IMPACT well over 15,000 youth each year in Arizona and we are actively working on expanding our sustainable community driven model to other areas of the country.
