Not all children have access to music education in school. In 2019 MusiCounts was thrilled to support 37 non-profit community organizations from coast-to-coast with a total of $500,000 worth of musical instruments and equipment via the MusiCounts TD Community Music Program. These instruments and equipment support a wide variety of organizations from hip-hop to concert band and are helping to ensure that all kids have access to music education.
