During the month of February, March and April of 2017, local non-profit Music4Life delivered 37 ready-to-play musical instruments to Highline Public Schools, valued at $22,585.

Included were four trombones; four clarinets; two flutes; four electric guitars; two trumpets; two double French horns; one alto sax; one cello; two snare kits; one viola; one upright piano; one oboe; two violins; four drum sets; two keyboards; and a classical guitar.

This brings the total number of instruments delivered to Highline Public Schools since September 1, 2016 to 69, valued at $62,334.

Also, Music4Life will be accepting donations of “lovingly used” instruments at the Folklife Festival at the Seattle Center this Memorial Day weekend.

Music4Life (www.Music4Life.org) provides musical instruments to participating schools for students in need. The Seattle-based non-profit acquires instruments from adults who no longer need them, gets them repaired (if possible) and then provides them to participating public school districts for use by students in need.

In addition to Highline Public Schools, participating schools include Edmonds, Everett, Mukilteo, Seattle and Shoreline. A community-wide activity, participants are local leaders who understand the unique role that participation in instrumental music has on the life and education of a child.

For more information or to donate an instrument to Music4Life, contact [email protected], call (206) 409-3275 or at www.Music4Life.org. Instrument donation forms are available online, as well as at designated instrument drop-off sites.
