    Hungry for Music supports parents who cannot afford to rent or purchase an instrument for their child. Also, we support music teachers/directors who have identified a child who could use our support. We also support after-school music programs such as Roots of Music in New Orleans, Junior Appalachian Musicians (JAM) in Southern Virginia, Rhode Island Fiddle Project, Intonation Music Workshop in Chicago, Little Five Points Music Center in Atlanta, to name a few.

    Please include complete address, email, and phone number.
    For School band program support, we recommend Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
    Thank you!
