I am a licensed counselor in the state of Michigan, as well as a college professor and speaker. The majority of my work (teaching, leading seminars or counseling) centers upon helping others in the areas of Servant Leadership, Diversity and Customer Service Training, Career Development Coaching and working with at-risk youth in overcoming issues of substance abuse, low self-esteem and poor communication skills. In finding out about Charity Music, I am so very impressed with the dedication they have to helping underpriviliged children throughout this country. To give a child, who otherwise would not have had the resources to do so, the opportunity to learn a musical instrument is a true commitment to our young people. They are forver creating ways in which to serve others via the wonderful gift of music. I am grateful to be a part of this organization. Jerry M.

Charity music is an organization that I enjoy assisting on a regular basis. As public school programs begin to lose funding for arts programs, students can no longer be provided free instruments to participate. The thought, "If you can't afford to be in band, you can't be in band" is not acceptable on any level. Any child not allowed to be in a band program because they can't afford an instrument is unfair and detrimental to a child's self esteem; making a child feel like they do not belong. Charity Music can change the lives of these kids dramatically and give them a chance to participate and feel accepted. Charity Music has the potential to expand on a statewide level with the right assistance from the community.
