The Mr. Holland's Opus Fund provides musical instruments to underserved K-12 school programs, enabling thousands of students to enjoy the life-altering benefits of a quality music education.
In the last several years, school music programs have been gutted by budget cuts. It is vitally important that children are not deprived of experiencing their enormous potential for creativity, imagination, discipline, self-esteem and confidence, as well as experiencing the social, emotional and cognitive benefits that come from playing music. Music programs are also a catalyst for creating parental and community involvement in school and often a motivating factor for a child to stay in school.
MHOF donates needed instruments to school music programs that struggle to stay active, so that more students can play and benefit from active music making.
Thousands of students each year, and many more over the life of the instruments, will be able to reap the lifelong benefits of a music education.
Thank you doesn't adequately express the deep appreciation we feel for all you have done to rescue our music program here at Mercy Cross High School! You have answered so many prayers! - Marsha Lyons, Band Director, Mercy Cross High School, Biloxi, MS
