Instruments Placed by Instrument Drives
collects and distributes donated instruments to pre-established music programs in need. Many times schools do not have a budget to purchase the necessary instruments to round out their programs, causing children to have to split time with an instrument with many other students or even worse, not participate in a program. EAR CANDY
orchestrates Instrument Drives® to collect instrument donations and works with school districts to ensure they are being utilized.
All instruments are important and so we go the extra mile and track donations to let donors know where it has been placed. The relationship with the instrument lives on with new life in the hands of a child.
