A Gift For Music is a program that believes every child should not just have the tools to succeed, but experiences along the way. A Gift For Music provides stringed instrument instruction to more than 400 Orange County third, fourth and fifth graders who normally could not afford to be involved in a stringed instrument program. Our students not only benefit from the exposure to classical music and instruction, they also benefit academically and socially.

There are many positive benefits related to studying a musical instrument, especially when a child begins study by age 8. Students with a background in music score significantly higher on standardized tests, receive more academic honors, resist peer pressure, experience improved math and reading scores, and show an improved self esteem and enjoyment of school.
