Music is life-changing! Not only can listening to great music brighten your day and ease your mind but learning to play an instrument is extraordinary for brain development. Did you know playing an instrument is one of the best ways to keep the brain healthy? This is why All Kids Need Music, a program to sponsor a child in the U.S. to learn a musical instrument, is on a mission to provide as many online music lessons for at-risk children who are orphaned and living in foster care in the U.S.
These children desperately need our help to provide them with something that will put a smile on their faces and can last a lifetime.

Playing an Instrument is Phenomenal For Brain Growth and Development, for Children and Adults!
While there have been decades of research suggesting listening to classical music can boost brain power, learning to play an instrument is the ultimate brain booster. John Dani, Ph.D., chair of Neuroscience at Penn’s Perelman School of Medicine, states that because playing music engages every major part of the central nervous system, it can be one of the best ways to keeping the brain healthy. This level of brain development can be transformative for U.S. orphans who have experienced so much loss and pain in their young lives.
Our music non-profit founder, Ed Kelly, has operated a music school for years. Director Kelly began noticing that students were unable to participate in the music programs in each classroom. The reality of these students’ circumstances hit Director Kelly hard because he believes that music has the power to transform children, providing joy, increasing academic performance, and decreasing stress levels. The children that need the benefits of learning to play music the most are the ones that do not have access to classes and cannot afford the instruments.
As a result, Director Kelly began providing for these children himself. He quickly realized there are far too many children in need than he could provide for personally. He decided to do something about it. And so, All Kids Need Music was born. It is a music non-profit organization and charity for children dedicated to making sure that the children who need the benefits of learning to play musical instruments can. The cost of renting an instrument and paying for the lessons are covered by caring people, businesses, and governmental entities who realize that every child needs and deserves access to the transformational power of playing music with music class.
