Youth in Mexico have been impacted by the growth of drug activity and violence infiltrating their neighborhoods and communities. The instability and risks that youth face in this type of environment are barriers to their education and their ability to feel safe and protected.
Thankfully, there is hope. Organizations like BMAI share our mission of using free music education as fuel for positive change in impoverished communities. Nearly 1,600 children from at-risk environments receive exceptionally strong music instruction ranging from popular to classical music, which focus on instilling values like teamwork, respect, responsibility, and discipline. Hundreds of children are on the BMAI wait list, a testament to the strength, promise, and demand for these music programs. Watch this video to get a behind the scenes look at the school, students, and the wonderful administrators who make it all happen!

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people. The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World. Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band—a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation—a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.
