This is a great charity that helps a lot of kids out who want to learn how to play music but can't because of insufficient funds.I think it's awesome that some kids want to learn music,and we need more places like this to keep music alive in children.It gives them something to do that's better than what some kids are doing now a days. :)

This charity is hands down amazing. Everyday we see kids wasting their talents because of financial issues. With charity music a child is able to seek its musical talents without being held back. When I was young I wanted to play the flute and unfortunately was not able to due to lack of funds, if a charity like this was around who knows maybe I would have went far with it. I'm beyond grateful to have been able to volunteer at such an awesome place, not only helping the organization but being able to benefit a child's life.

I relocated to Michigan from San Diego and I was looking for a non-profit organization that has a great purpose and is committed to their cause. Via the United Way website, I found Charity Music. Being a musician, I looked into the charity and I was truly impressed. What they do to promote music for the community, especially children and the military, is truly outstanding! Their 'Instrument Petting Zoo' is such a great idea to instill the desire to take up playing a musical instrument, especially for children, is awesome. Having two young children of my own, I can see the importance and value that this brings. I will be bringing my own children to the 'zoo' the next time it is featured at a local event. So many charities have ulterior motives. There is none with Charity Music. They are an outstanding organization. I look forward to working with them for a long time to come and I encourage others to volunteer their time, donate music and music related materials, and spread the word!

I began working with Charity Music at the beginning of the year and I have seen the tremendous things that they do first-hand! From the travelling petting zoo to the soon-to-be-open store in Clinton Township – everything they do is dedicated to the community.

Having worked as a volenteer for Charity Music Im am inspired and is rewarding to know there are many people like myself willing to devote there time to give back to the community. This is the best by far giving back to our Military the joy of music and to keep music alive to all those who once helped us. Seeing the children at the (PETTING ZOO) explore all the different types of instruments and getting to keep there dreams in playing an instument regardless of financial curcumstances.Charity Music helps provide children with an instrument for 35.00 a YR and so much more its great to see the kids have the oppurtunity to explore all that music has to offer. Working with Roger has been a pleasure he has completely devoted his time and all that he can do to give each and every individual an oppurtunity to fulfill there dreams.He makes a huge impact on our community with all he has to devote! Its been my pleasure to be involved in such a great charity I look forward to continuing to being apart of a wonderful organization
