Our mission

Transforming lives by transforming music education.

For more than two decades, we’ve provided access to music education to over a million students who might not have otherwise had access in their schools. These programs teach students popular genres such as rock, pop, R&B, Latin, rap, and country, along with styles found in typical school programs such as classical and jazz.

We strive to make music education available to all students regardless of their socioeconomic background, and it should reflect the cultures of the students we serve.

Our Reach

We believe that music education is a right, not a privilege.

Today, a national network of K-12 districts have adopted the Music Will program in their schools. Music Will teachers currently serve over 600,000 students in more than 600 cities and towns across the country. More than 70 colleges and universities teach our approach to their music education majors. Explore more about our music programs and how the modern band approach is making a positive impact in communities across America.

“Kids have found their voice through music. Many families have acquired instruments for their students. Students are playing music with and developing relationships with family members through their exposure to the Music Will program. The program has been a “game changer” for my students!”

"It helps me grow as a person on the inside and as if I am learning a new language I never heard of.”

“Your relentless support of teachers and students is what keeps us all going. We could not imagine navigating through this new “normal” without you!”

Jill Russell-Benner

Teacher/Arts Administrator, Danbury, CT

"This program serves as a huge platform for my students to find themselves as musicians. The after school band that was meeting had students in it from very different backgrounds and musical stories as well as musical abilities. But they were unified, quickly becoming a hub of positivity in our building.”
