Providing every child access to the life-changing experience of making music.


The 2021 Instrument Drive was a resounding success!

  • Thanks to everyone who cleaned out a closet or drove through snow drifts to donate an instrument.

  • Thanks also to those of you who generously contributed to our Instrument Repair Fund.

  • And finally, thank you to our partners – our 15 donation locations for their frontline help collecting instruments, and our media friends at Colorado Public Radio, 9News, KUNC, Rocky Mountain PBS, and KUVO for their supportive publicity. 

The hundreds and hundreds of instruments you played in the past and chose to part with during our recent Instrument Drive, now offer promise and possibility to the next generation of music students.  But first, they must be carefully restored.  Thanks to our skillful repair partners at The Colorado Institute of Musical Instrument Technology and Boomer Music Company, all of the gently-used and previously-owned instruments we award to underfunded school music programs throughout Colorado play like new!
