It has been proven that by sharing instruments and musical experiences, children can experience a kind of freedom & self-discovery that is often stifled in an atmosphere of economic hardship. The Instrument Donation Program is a natural extension of our vision to expose all children to music.
Thus far, the youth initiative program, entitled Music Saved My Life, has provided funding for subsidized lesson, instruments, performances, and workshops with professional musicians and production education.
Are those instruments in your attic collecting dust?
Put Them To Work!
You can also donate to the Instrument Program Fund Here
The objective is to bestow these instruments to students who cannot afford to the cost of instruments or music programs. Instruments that cannot be placed will be auctioned off in support of the program.
The Asbury Park Music Foundation thanks you for your continued support. An annual fundraising event to solicit instruments for the program will be held beginning in 2016. Your donation will put a musical instrument in the hands of a young underserved person in our community. You can bring the love of music to kids so that Asbury Park can continue its great music tradition, and it is a tax write off for you! Remember music is the soul of the city, and the children are our future.
