Instrument Drive to Create an Instrument Closet

Help provide instruments to kids who love music but can't afford the instrument

There's something about music that speaks to us. It changes our lives in ways nothing else can. Around 4th grade, it is customary for Rockport Schools to hold an instrument trial day. Some students instantly fall in love with an instrument, but then financials come into play when trying to get the child that instrument. The reality is that some families can't afford to pay the expense for the instrument.
