Help pay for the necessary repairs so these "closet" horns can be repaired and given to a deserving student.

About the Project

Ted Brown Music Outreach helps hundreds of underprivileged and low-income kids play music each year.

Last year, 50 students were turned away because we did not have an instrument available for them.  Most of the requests were for stringed instruments (violins, violas, and cellos). Violins and violas cost about $400 to purchase. Cellos cost $900. The average cost of repairing instrument is $125. Our goal is to raise enough money to purchase 3 each violins, violas and cellos – and repair 15 band instruments. 

Ted Brown Music Outreach helps hundreds of underprivileged and low-income kids play music each year. We collect unused band and orchestra instruments and donate them to kids who can't afford to play in school band or orchestra. We collected 152 instruments last year, and each year the demand is higher. All money received by Ted Brown Music Outreach goes straight toward purchasing new instruments to fill this demand, and toward repairing our instrument donations (each instrument costs approximately $200 to repair and sanitize). With a little help, we can do a lot more. Help Ted Brown Music Outreach bring music to the lives of young people with a donation, or consider donating an instrument. We currently have a high demand for orchestral string instruments, violins, violas and especially cellos.
