When my daughter was first accepted to college we had to make some difficult choices when establishing her budget. Charity Music was there when we needed help in cultivating her musical talents. The industry wide Clarinet rental fee is $35.00 monthly. When Charity Music reviewed our situation, they provided the instrument at a cost of $35.00 for an entire year. Thanks Charity Music for all the good that you are doing.

I have been a volunteer with Charity Music for the past 3 months and enjoy working on the various programs offered. The one I enjoyed the most is their Notes of Appreciation - Music for Our Military. It provides musical instruments and music related items in support of music therapy programs in VA hospitals. They really go out of their way to instruct us volunteers on how nonprofits operate.

I am a Director on the Board of Charity Music, Inc.

I decided to be on this board once I knew the difference these musical instruments are making in the lives of those less fortunate.

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.

What an excellent idea to furnish musical instruments that are not being used to those who would appreciate the gift of music.Let's all help get these kids off the streets and into music studios where they can feel a sense of accomplishment.Keep up the excellent work.

Charity Music was there to help when my son decided he wanted to play an instrument. They provided him with a trumpet to use for the school year at no cost whatsoever! Their passion for helping people experience an opportunity when it may not otherwise be possible is evident. As a result our son has been in band at school, has made new friends with a positive, similar interest (music) and this experience has boosted his confidence! Thank you Charity Music!!!!! It wouldn't have happened without you! You guys ROCK!!!!!

Charity Music Inc. provides a great service to the community. The service that Charity Music provides is a source for musical instruments to individuals who have the need. I have witnessed many people to benefit from the donations and in turn those who received an instrument. If you need a musical instrument or would like to donate unused instruments, Charity Music is the place to use.

I've been involved with Charity Music for the last 2 years, first as a volunteer participating in a variety of projects and events that sustain the goal of Charity Music's mission, " To provide musical instruments, and instructional tools to at risk and disadvantaged children". There are many goals in life that can result in accomplishing things that matter. Providing instruments to our children who do not have the funds to acquire them, presents a tremendous opportunity to our youth to set goals, and inspire creativity, as well as the next generation of musicians.

I called him and he called me back while he was on a cruise - what service! He set us up with a great ddrum set that my son will love. I am so happy I found him and my son will be happy when he is playing the drums.

Our Granddaughter is 10 years old and has cerebral palsey. She is able to get around pretty well at this point, but must wear braces and finds herself falling behind her classmates often. We are always looking for activities that she can be at an even keel with people that do not have to wear braces. She was just awarded a scholarship for a strings program. While we were thrilled with this news, our hearts also sunk because we would have to pay for the monthly instrument rental. I have been unemployed for two years and do not have anymore unemployment benefits. We are currently cutting back on everything. We did not want to make this part of our cutbacks.
We contacted Charity Music for help. They reached out and provided us with an instrument for her to use. They opened up on a Saturday to allow us to pick up the instrument before her first lesson. We were greeted with kindness and excellent customer service.
Thank you to the team at Charity Music!!

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.

Charity Music Inc has been a true inspiration to me by providing opportunities for me to participate in programs that are having a real and lasting positive effect in the lives of many children throughout the State of Michigan during these difficult economic times.


Charity Music has proven to be an organization that honestly represents the full intended purpose of a charitable 501c3 organization and will continue to impact the lives of our youth for years to come.

Charity music provides excellent services to upcoming muscians, established musician and others who are begining. They have helped several people including practicing student receive expensive instruments they could not afford otherwise. The experience working for their company has brought me insight, and enriched my life beyond measure I wouldn't change a thing! Except getting more volunteers so this company can grow.
