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.

I donated a piano to Ear Candy, and have a friend who is active in their events. I'm following their newsletter and plan to donate again. I'm very impressed with their effectiveness, their many events and activities, and the professionalism of their communications and marketing.

Ear Candy Charity has such a fantastic goal of keeping music in our under-funded public school system programs. The founder, Nate Anderson, works tirelessly to gather musical instruments and funding to run this charity and is a truly fantastic person. I highly recommend donating your unused musical instruments, time or money to help keep the music alive.
