Your donation will help children have the opportunity to enhance their education through music
Music4Life (www.Music4Life.org) provides ready-to- play musical instruments to schools for students in need. We get these instruments from people who realize that their highest and best use is to put them back into play. These same people understand the unique value that participation in instrumental music activities has on the life and education of a child: Better performance in and understanding of concepts in math, science, history, literature, international languages, reading, writing, even in computer science. In addition to what it teaches in terms of teamwork and self-discipline. These benefits are available to all students, unless their families cannot afford to get them a musical instrument in the first place. And in today’s economy, many families cannot afford even to rent a musical instrument.
This is where Music4Life steps-in. We get the musical instruments fully repaired. When we have adequate financial resources, we also can buy new musical instruments teachers tell us they need. Music4Life gets volume discounts from participating vendors. Still, repairs and new instruments — even when discounted — can be costly. On average, it costs us $125 to repair a musical instrument.
Music4Life is financially supported by people and organizations who also value “children,” “instrumental music” or “education.” (For a complete current list, click here.) Even $25 or $50 helps us purchase a new mouthpiece for a trumpet or bow for a violin. You can donate using PayPal where you can use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express or DiscoverCard, whether you have a PayPal account or not.
