Day" is one of two music-related holidays founded by Keep Music
Alive. In March 2017, the organization partnered with over 600 music schools in all 50 states and Canada to offer free lessons to new students as part of the Third Annual "Teach Music America
James, co-founder of Keep Music
Alive and "Kids Music
Day," said, "We recognize that many public schools across the country are cutting or reducing their music and arts programs. Research has shown how critical music and arts education are to developing our children's minds and character. Our mission is to highlight musical programs, wherever possible, to help raise awareness of how valuable music really is to our children and our collective future." Some of the largest music school chains in the nation will be participating in this year's "Kids Music
Day" in many of their locations, including Music
& Arts, Kindermusik, Music
Together and the legendary School of Rock.
Alive is dedicated to promoting the value of music for children's education, for therapy and for overall happiness in society. The organization published the book series 88+ Ways Music
Can Change Your Life, featuring inspirational music stories from musicians, music teachers and music fans from around the world, including a number of celebrities. Fifty percent of all proceeds from 88+ Ways Music
are donated to organizations that provide musical instruments and instruction to schools and communities in need. Current beneficiaries include Guitars in the Classroom, Spirit
of Harmony and The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation.
