The Ear Candy Charity Mission

Ear Candy Charity is based in Phoenix, AZ and our mission is to Provide Youth Access to Music Education.  Arizona is currently 49th out of 50 states in per person educational funding and arts programs are the first to get cut.  We fulfill our mission through Instrument Drives®, Backstage Class® field trips and Community Partnerships:

Instrument Drives®: To address budget shortfalls in Music programming, Ear Candy created Instrument Drives® to collect gently used instruments for children who otherwise cannot afford them. The process is simple: Individuals from the community donate instruments at valley Fire Stations, Ear Candy collects the instruments and then works collaboratively with schools to place them in the hands of low income students. The Journey of the Instrument is completed when the original donor is notified of the school or program where the instrument they donates has been placed.

Backstage Class®: Ear Candy hosts music field trips to supplement traditional music education by providing children once in a lifetime opportunities to experience music in unique and impactful ways. The field trips are unique, eye-opening experiences and have included tickets to concerts, trips to recording studios, radio stations and instrument manufacturers, sound checks and meet and greets with major recording artists.

Community Partnerships: Ear Candy partners with local organizations such as the Phoenix Conservatory of Music to provide traditional after-school music programming to youth in the phoenix area.  We have also teamed up with the Arizona State University School of Music Therapy and AZ Rhythm Connection to create the Community Music and Wellness Center which hosts a variety of holistic music programming.

The Goal of Ear Candy is to: CREATE CULTURALLY ENLIGHTENED MEMBERS OF SOCIETY!  We are on track to IMPACT well over 10,000 youth each year, and we are actively working on expanding our sustainable community driven model to other areas of the country.
