Music is Art's most successful program is our instrument program. Since starting the program we have placed over a half million dollar's worth of musical instruments back into our community. We do this with the support of our generous community members. We accept new and used instruments year-round, have them repaired and refurbished and find them just the right home to continue to be used and loved.

Who We Do It For
At Hungry for Music, our mission is putting quality musical instruments into hungry hands. We serve children who demonstrate a desire to learn music, as well as teachers who have students willing to learn. We believe that by sharing instruments and musical experiences, children who would not otherwise have the opportunity can experience a kind of freedom and self-discovery that is often stifled in an atmosphere of economic hardship. We invite you to watch the video and see the transformative power of the gift of a musical instrument. See the miracle of music in action, transforming young hungry souls into inspired musicians. In , we celebrated our 25th year of providing the gift of music to underserved children with a hunger to play.
