We'll Donate Instruments

Yamaha will donate brand new instruments to schools in need
In 2005, Music Rising was launched to rescue the musical culture of the Central Gulf region of the U.S. from the destruction caused by the catastrophic hurricanes Katrina and Rita by replacing the musical instruments lost or destroyed in the deluge. Co-founded by U2's The Edge and legendary producer Bob Ezrin, the organization continues to aid schools affected by natural disasters nationwide.
Yamaha is now pledging to help schools in the path of the recent hurricanes — with your help.
The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation administers the Music Rising fund and works with schools requesting our help, replacing instruments and supplies lost and damaged by the disaster. More than $3.3 million worth of instruments have been donated, helping to restore music programs in over 100 schools.

Music Changes Lives

People across the country, across many different walks of life, have stories to tell about the impact that a quality music education has had on their lives. Yamaha wants to help share those stories.
