Music Doing Good with Instruments
Music Doing Good with Instruments grants gently-used instruments to underserved students and underfunded school districts.
Where music programs are scaled back or eliminated, instruments are often scarce. By partnering with individuals, organizations, and retail vendors, Music Doing Good with Instruments collects, refurbishes, and redistributes instruments to underserved students and underfunded schools in the greater Houston area. Strings, brass, percussion and woodwind instruments are needed for budding young musicians.
Numerous studies have verified that children who learn a musical instrument, music appreciation and musical performance, demonstrate higher academic scores specifically in math, science and languages. As music programs continue to disappear from the classrooms, Music Doing Good assists in filling the gaps. We believe that education in music is not a luxury — it is a necessity.
To schedule an instrument donation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our staff spends time working offsite at schools and music programs, but we will be happy to work with your schedule to arrange a drop off!
“I just wanted to give you an update on your first recipient! He’s in symphonic band at Stafford Middle School, AND he performs with Jack Yates High School Band! He is having a great time, and is learning so much! Yates is now class 3-A, which allows a middle schooler to perform on the field! The music programs in the surrounding schools have sadly shut down, leaving so many students without an outlet for their talents until [they reach] high school.”
