To make music accessible by:

  • Providing tuition support to motivated students in need of assistance;

Live the Music Foundation is an organization dedicated to enriching lives through music education and performance. Live the Music Foundation believes that sharing music with others enhances lives by offering people the best experience and means to express their musical passions. We believe in the importance of enriching lives with the art of music. Therefore, the organization seeks to increase the accessibility of music participation to everyone in the community by sponsoring live music events, funding education scholarships and equipment-related capital campaigns.

The founders of the Live the Music Foundation have experienced the impact of music within their own lives and believe in sharing the gift of music with others. Noting a decrease in local live music performances and an increase in financial need for promising students, the founders see an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of passionate students who seek to have a positive impact on the world.
