The Instrumental Foundation

If you have participated in any band, you probably know that feeling of excitement and magic music creates. There is nothing more validating than playing a fantastic piece you spent hours practicing on stage.

Hello, we are Caleb, Maanya, and Tanush. Band has played an instrumental role in the last seven years of our lives. We currently participate in the marching band and school band. But recently, we realized that not everyone has the same opportunities that we do. Instruments alone are pricey, and the tutoring needed to improve can cost more than some students' parents can afford.

We wanted to change this. We decided to start a student-run organization that strives to provide more accessible musical education by donating instruments to schools and individuals and offering free tutoring.

We would truly appreciate any donation amount. Every penny you donate will be spent to help reach our goal of helping underprivileged students to obtain the musical education they deserve.

We would also appreciate it if you could spread the word to family and friends to reach as many people as possible.

Thank you so much,

Caleb Joo, Maanya Raghuram, Tanush Sharma
