Challenge

In the last several years, school music programs have been gutted by budget cuts. It is vitally important that children are not deprived of experiencing their enormous potential for creativity, imagination, discipline, self-esteem and confidence, as well as experiencing the social, emotional and cognitive benefits that come from playing music. Music programs are also a catalyst for creating parental and community involvement in school and often a motivating factor for a child to stay in school.

Solution

The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation keeps music alive in our schools by providing durable, high-quality musical instruments to deserving, under-funded music programs nationwide.

Long-Term Impact

By increasing the school's inventory of quality, playable instruments, music teachers are given the tools they need to deliver a quality music education to students who want to learn, re-energize their program, attract new students and instill a sense of pride and worth for the students and the entire school.
