From March 11th through the 23rd, Bringing Music to Life will hold their 2019 Instrument Drive, collecting donations of gently-used band and orchestra instruments that will be repaired and awarded to deserving music programs throughout the state.
It has been proven time and again that learning to play an instrument can have a profound, positive impact on a child, teaching valuable life skills as well as boosting confidence and self-esteem.
Over the past eight instrument drives, more than 4,200 instruments have awarded to more than 200 elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the state. But there are still many more children who want to learn to play but can't afford to rent or buy an instrument. If you have an instrument you can donate, please do so beginning March 11th.
Even if you don't have an instrument, you can help by contributing to Bringing Music to Life's repair fund. $155 is all it takes to repair a donated instrument and put it in the hands of a child. Complete information about the upcoming drive, including drop off locations, is available at www.bringmusic.org.
