Your donation makes a difference.

Childhood is a great time to try new things; to nurture a talent, find a passion. For many kids, that passion is music – we want to help ignite this passion for music in kids today, and we need your help to do it.

Your support helps kids pursue their passion for music. This is an incredible opportunity for these kids, and it's also an opportunity for you to support this project. Your donation of any size will help pay for the event, from engineers and equipment to workshops and judges. Many of us are already volunteering our time, now we need funding to make this possible.
