Programs: 1.) Online Instrument Drives® connects Music Teachers with Instrument & Financial Donors to place high quality, refurbished instruments in the hands of their students. Old instruments become the solution to music education by getting a New life!
2.) Play It Forward is a service learning program that equips any group with the tools, training, and mentoring they need to create and host their own physical Instrument Drive. 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.

An incredible charity that actually performs on their mission without fail or unfulfilled hype. From the founder to the board, they share one single vision that has brought so much joy and relief in these difficult times (which I have witnessed first hand). I am very critical of charity groups with all of the dishonesty these days, but Ear Candy Charity has my full support.
