Hungry for Music is a 501(c)(3) charity organization that supports music
education and cultural enrichment, both in the United States and abroad, by
acquiring and distributing quality musical instruments to underserved
children with willing instructors and a hunger to play.
At Hungry for Music, our most important service is putting 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. Music has the ability to heal, it soothes tension and has the ability to transform sadness and aggression to hope and creativity. Music is the prayer through which the
world heals itself.
We believe that by sharing instruments and musical experiences, children who
would not normally have the opportunity can experience a kind of freedom and
self-discovery that is often stifled in an atmosphere of economic hardship.
All of our events, benefits, instrument drives, and compact disc production
are aimed at uplifting those lives and enriching culture at large by
spreading the availability of music education. Here are just a few examples of what we do:
