Music + Arts

Music and art speak to the soul.

Donating Instruments.

We purchase brand new instruments tailored to each school’s needs.


String, brass, and electronic instruments have been distributed to classrooms nationwide.

  • Music Workshops.

    Our TUNES Ambassadors host one-of-a-kind music workshops and live performances at under served schools.

  • Emerging Artists.

    We support emerging artists as they grow their careers through in-studio, touring and equipment support.

  • Cultivating Visual Arts.

    We team up with local artists of different disiplines to create live paintings, community murals and unique art pieces that increase access to art for all.

  • Art Kits.

    We use people power to assemble art supplies for children most at need – those in foster care, experiencing homelessness and recovery from natural disasters. We strive to give young artists a chance to live a life of creativity.

  • Revolution of Joy

    In partnership with Très Taylor, we’re working to spark a Revolution of Joy by painting 20 community murals in the Blackbelt Region of Alabama by 2020.
