About: ﷯My name is Troy Castellano. I am a songwriter and musician in the Nashville area. I want to do my part to give back the gift of making music! I am super passionate about keeping music making alive and passing it down through the generations so I am starting this new organization called Instruments For Education (IFE). Instruments For Education will accept musical instruments and monetary donations. In turn the instruments will be donated to area schools. Any monetary donations will go to fund the purchase of instruments, operating costs and expansion and growth of the organization. We all know funding for school music programs is continually shrinking or they flat out don't have a budget for musical instruments. From pre-schools to high schools, we want to get as many schools as possible equipped with musical instruments that the kids can play with and inspire them with a love of making music. Making music is such a great alternative to our younger generations that are spending hours of time on video games, binge watching TV, social media and anything screen related! Let's help give them the gift of music. It can provide a lifetime of creative enjoyment and an added skill set to anyone’s life! Please consider donating your unused musical instrument. Do not take music for granted, it is so important to pass on. Send us a message describing what you have and we will arrange a time to pick it up. Of course, if it takes a delivery truck to get like a full blown piano, we will put that on a list for pick up from the receiving party, if they are willing to take it. Thanks for considering a donation. Can't wait to see the kids smiling making music!

This is what it is all about! The team at Godin Guitars had the same thing in mind that IFE does. We want kids to have access to touch, strum and hopefully fall in love with playing an instrument. Godin has donated a few of these Merlins to IFE which will be donated to area schools here in the U.S.

Donate Your support is what makes it all happen

You can make an instrument donation or a monetary donation to Instruments For Education. If you have an instrument to donate please use the contact form to let us know what you have. If it is larger instrument we may need to make special arrangements or may not be able to accept. Most others we can pick up or make other arrangements to meet or drop off. Currently have drop off locations in Columbia TN (Instruments For Education) and Spring Hill TN (Bluesman Vintage).

 

Note: Most instruments will go directly to classrooms. However, there may be times when we receive a high end instrument that is not suited for beginner student. In the case of this type of donation, we will be clear with the owner of the value and that we may auction of the donation to raise money for IFE to buy more starter instruments or reinvest into the IFE organization.
