Mission

At Sunshine Music House, we believe that learning to play an instrument not only teaches children to appreciate and perform music, but also provides determination, teamwork building, positive work ethic, and constructive study habits. Being involved in a musical ensemble can help children to have more social attitudes and gain friendship with others in the group. By donating or becoming involved with Sunshine Music House, you are helping children engage in a positive, constructive, and enjoyable activity that they will be able to take with them for their entire lives! Learning musical arts takes dedication, hard work, talent, and money. Sunshine Music House was formed with the goal of providing musical instruments to children who do not have the means of purchasing instruments.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

When young people are exposed to music and band, their minds expand and they improve cognitive and social skills. Musical instruments and lessons are out of reach of many students in Hall and Montgomery County, GA.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

High School Band Student Scholarships

We believe band makes better students. Our annual scholarships are provided to the top academic band student in each public school in Hall County and Montgomery County, GA.

Population(s) Served

Music skills learned early in life often lead to lifelong musicians. We know that middle school is a great opportunity for children to be introduced to music. A lack of quality instruments should not be a barrier. That's why we donate musical instruments to Hall County and Montgomery County middle schools.

Population(s) Served

Laptops and desktop computers are necessary for the academic success of students. Hall County and Montgomery County has a high population percentage of public school students that lack access to computers. We are changing that! Sunshine Music House refurbishes computers and donates the computers to students. Access to technology at home is important for life success. We bridge the gap!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to provide musical instruments to middle school students, scholarships to high school band students and music lessons to the community.

We partner with each high school and middle school band director to donate instruments and arrange annual scholarships for high school seniors. We also donate funds to cover fall band fees, instument rentals and sheet music. We provide safe surroundings for volunteers to donate music lessons to students and the community.

We operate a thrift store that builds our non-profits endowment. This, along with private and corporate donations, allows us to continue to expand our donation of musical instruments and scholarships.

Our current scholarships total $15,000 annually. Musical instrument donations to middle schools is $12,500 and we donate more than $10,000 of computers and software to local students annually. We have a goal of providing $45,000 of annual scholarships and $25,000 in musical instruments on an annual basis.
