Hungry for Music

"When they did give me the piano I was so excited because I can finally fulfill my dreams and finally do something great with my life"

-- a student

Hungry for Music is a charity organization that supports music education and cultural enrichment, both in the United States and abroad, by acquiring and distributing quality musical instruments to under served children with willing instructors and a hunger to play. At Hungry for Music, the most important service is putting musical instruments into hungry hands. They 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. They 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.
