Donations funnel directly into our programs to teach music, production, engineering, performance & industry skills in collaboration with professionals. Your donation is tax deductible through our non-profit fiscal sponsor, the "Story Project". The above button directs you to a Pay Pal detailed "Play with Music" (your tax deduction receipt however will come from the "Story Project").  All amounts graciously accepted. Thank you!

Play with Music programs require working instruments and modern technology to run smoothly, especially when operating in under funded schools. Your in-kind donations of musical instruments, hardware, software and other resources is vital to preparing students for careers NOW. Please get in touch to find out about how you can help our current programs. Thank you! 

Not so fun fact - California spends less than $1 per kid per year on arts education. Help us bring music and creative play to the schools that can't afford it, but need it the most. Adopting a school supports two semesters of Play with Music programming for up to 50 students. Click the button above and get in touch to learn more about how to adopt a school in a community you care about. Thank you!


Are you a musician, composer, producer, audio engineer or film maker? Our students need your mentorship! Most of their students have their first experience writing music, engineering, producing & performing on camera in Play with Music. We need experienced and caring mentors that can help teach & inspire our kids. Get in touch and tell us more about yourself !

Use your talent and experience to change the lives of our students. Apply to come lead a session with our kids in your own style. Talk about your experience & process (songwriting, performance, engineering, production, or music industry). Write a part for the program song & culminate your session with a performance and Q&A. Two hours of your time can change their lives.

Play with Music teaches by using a program song as its platform. Lend your song for this purpose and watch as endless variations and student collaborations blossom from your work. 


Help us build bridges (and resumes) to support students pursuing their dreams.

Give the gift of experience by hosting a field trip, and widen the frame of reference of our students.
