What happens to the instruments I donate?

Music 4 More will have the instrument evaluated, cleaned and repaired if needed. We will then work to find a placement in a school music program, after school program, community organization, music therapy group or veteran in music lessons.

Can I donate my instrument to a specific school or project?

If you have a preference, please make note of it on your donation form. We will make every effort to fulfill the request.

What if my instrument is broken and can’t be repaired?

We recycle every instrument possible. If an instrument is beyond repair we will use it for parts or ask an artist or school to make cool art out of it and use it for art shows, raffles, or auctions to benefit Music 4 More.
