Sounds Academy

Today, many of our schools are forced to sacrifice much needed music programs that teach creativity, perseverance, leadership and teamwork. Sounds Academy fills this void by placing musical instruments in the hands of our underserved children. In addition to working with the schools, Sounds provides programs to further develop the student’s musical path with community programs and collaboration with local musicians, as well as providing scholarships.

Sounds Academy is a Qualifying Charitable Organization, which means your monetary donation can claim a “dollar for dollar” Arizona State Tax Credit. I support this non-profit as a board member and through personal and public fundraising. I would like to encourage you to take a closer look and consider lending your support.
