kids music bandThe goal of holding the “Kids Music Day” is to help promote the importance of including music in children’s education. Activities are being planned by music schools at over 50 schools from 14 states. Kids Music Day activities include open houses, student performances and musical instrument donation drives in local communities.

Music Education

Vincent James, co-founder of Keep Music Alive and “Kids Music Day,” says, “We recognize so many public schools across the country are cutting or reducing their music and arts programs. Research has shown how critical music and art education are to developing our children’s minds and character. Our mission is to spotlight musical programs, and help raise awareness of how valuable music really is to our children and our collective future.”

Donate

Keep Music Alive is dedicated to promoting the value of music: educationally, therapeutically and overall making us a happier society. It has published the book 88+ Ways Music Can Change Your Life, featuring over 150 inspirational music stories with proceeds donated to organizations that provide musical instruments and instruction to schools and communities in need. Current benefactors are Guitars in the Classroom, Spirit of Harmony and Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
