More than a motto

Rallying you to

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 disciplines 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 kits which are donated to children in need – those in foster care, experiencing homelessness and recovering from natural disasters. We strive to give young children creative outlets, which help combat the ongoing mental health crisis.

  • Revolution of Joy

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

Woody Platt & Shannon Whitworth

Husband and wife duo, Woody Platt and Shannon Whitworth of Brevard, North Carolina, each have a unique history of musical accomplishments. A silver lining of the global pandemic has been more time at home, which has allowed them to play, write, record and perform together. They have curated a set of music comprised mostly of Whitworth’s original songs.

Shannon Whitworth’s swoon-inducing musical style found its first showcase in her Asheville-produced solo debut, 2007’s No Expectations. Followed by 2009’s critically-acclaimed Water Bound, an album that drew comparisons to Emmylou Harris’ Wrecking Ball. Whitworth is a songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. She has garnered praise in outlets ranging from People magazine to Garden & Gun. Her honest reinterpretation of ‘Americana,’ a la Mark Knopfler meets Norah Jones and the ghost of Julie London, has garnered Whitworth prime appearances from Philadelphia Folk Festival to Yosemite’s Strawberry Music Festival to Nashville’s own Ryman Auditorium. Shannon is also an acclaimed artist and spends much of her time in her art studio these days. She was quoted in Walter Magazine saying, “My art is how I see the world,” says artist and singer-songwriter Shannon Whitworth. “And my music is how I hear it.”

Woody Platt, a Brevard native, was a founding member of the Grammy award winning band Steep Canyon Rangers. The band started as a group of friends getting together to play music that they love while studying at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and blossomed into the highly successful and world-renowned musicians that they are today. The band toured the world on their own, and alongside the well known actor/comedian/musician Steve Martin. During Woody’s tenure with Steep Canyon Rangers, the band won multiple awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), a Grammy award with 3 total Grammy Nominations and were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame. Since retiring from the Steep Canyon Rangers in the summer of 2022 – Woody has been working on solo recording projects including a debut single “One Last Goodbye” which features an all star Bluegrass lineup and was written by Chris Stapleton. “One Last Goodbye” spent several months in the number one position on the Bluegrass charts.
