Give the gift of music Notes for Education Northshore Fund is currently seeking unwanted or gently used instruments. Donating that band or orchestra instrument you no longer use can make a profound difference in a child’s life. Notes for Education Northshore makes it easy to donate your used musical instruments to school music programs in need. We host a platform that makes it a snap to part with your sentimental pieces. Whether it’s a clarinet, a tuba or a set of drums that you donate, students will put it to good use–and the music will go on. If you have an instrument, please bring it to one of our donation locations so another child can receive the gift of music. Be instrumental in supporting quality music and art education in schools!
