Desert Sounds is a nonprofit arts organization based in Tempe, Arizona serving the needs of low income residents in the Phoenix area. They provide free instruments to students who would like to join band or orchestra in their schools but cannot afford to get their own instrument. I teach orchestra in an area where many students fit this profile. These students turn to Desert Sounds to get an instrument to use for the school year. After receiving an instrument from Desert Sounds, they come to orchestra with a huge smile on their faces. They are so excited to get their own instrument! They are responsible and take care of their instruments throughout the whole school year. These students are thankful for the services they receive from Desert Sounds. I want to thank the owner and operator of this organization for the services given to my students. Thank you, Desert Sounds!

From the onset, Desert Sounds Performing Arts has been a "grass roots" organization of parents that have sought funding resources to put instruments in the hands of students that wouldn't be able to participate in Band or String programs otherwise.
