Hungry for Music’s mission is to bring positive musical and creative experiences in to the lives of underprivileged children by providing them with donated musical instruments. These instruments are donated throughout the nation as well as internationally.

At Hungry for Music, our most important service is putting musical
instruments into hungry hands. Children who demonstrate a desire to learn
music, or teachers who have willing pupils, but no instruments, are the
clients we serve. Most anyone will attest to the healing power of music; its
ability to soothe in times of tension, its ability to transform sadness and
aggression into 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 music education.

Mitzvah project or teen volunteer opportunity: Organize an instrument drive to donate the instruments to these underprivileged children.
