Recycle musical instruments? Absolutely!
Here’s how to get music into the hands of children whose family’s may struggle to afford them. And get stuff our of your attic/close/basement/ foot of the stairs, …etc.
The Three Rs Music Program Instrument Drive is Coming to Lindsay. Music Canada’s AMY TERRILL AND Professional musician WARREN FRANK of the band The Kents, explain the potential result of putting an instrument into the hands of someone who wants to learn music. The Three Rs Music Program is putting out a call to all Lindsay, Ontario residents for donations of gently used musical instruments. After a successful small-scale pilot at Sawdust City Music Festival in Gravenhurst, the first community instrument drive of the program will happen in partnership with the Trillium Lakelands District School Board (TLDSB) on September 29th.
Residents can drop off instruments between 12:30pm – 3:30pm at Mackey Celebrations Inc (35 Lindsay Street North, Lindsay, ON). While all instruments are welcomed, young musicians in the community have requested ukuleles, flutes, clarinets and trumpets to complete their music education program. The Three Rs Music Program has partnered with Van Halteren’s Music Centre, who will aid in refurbishing donated instruments. Once refurbished, instruments will be distributed back to the region’s schools based on the needs identified by the TLDSB. Music Canada Cares is proud to partner with MusiCounts to offer tax receipts for each instrument donation.
