Under the supervision of Music Mentor volunteers, participants also learn about the various families of musical instruments.
The Music Mentor volunteers typically consist of owners and employees from local Music Stores. Many Petting Zoo participants advance into school music programs, and/or private music lessons.
Giving the Gift of Music
Charity Music's Gift of Music program provides entry level start-up music opportunities to schools, and other deserving non profit organizations that could not otherwise afford to implement such programs.
In addition to free sheet music, there are over 25 various musical instruments to choose from, at a substantially reduced rental rate.
Schools that previously could not afford a music program are discovering that the ability to create a music program is well within their budget.
Charity Music Library
The Charity Music Library contains a vast assortment of music related items to further enhance music learning and music appreciation.
Over 12,000 Vinyl Records, 450 Method Books, 150 Casettes, 1,500 pieces of Sheet Music, and over 150,000 down loadable songs are currently available at no charge.
Additional expansion of the Charity Music rehearsal and recording studio is scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2015.
