Revitalizing Music Education in America

Don't Stop the Music is a star-studded multi-platform media event and community initiative that will provide students with the two cornerstones they need for a fully formed music education: experiences and equipment.

Utilizing a three-tiered effort to revitalize music education in America, Don't Stop the Music will include a public TV documentary, an all star concert and an instrument collection drive.

Television Documentary

Hosted by Harry Connick Jr., and featuring music legends across genres and decades, this fun and informative TV documentary will awaken Americans to the importance of music education.  


A large concert (or series of concerts) will feature many of the world-renowned members of “Team DSTM,” along with students and inspirational educators, to serve as the kick-off to the nationwide instrument collection drive.

By collecting, refurbishing and distributing 50,000 instruments to save music for 250,000 students, Don’t Stop the Music will get instruments directly into the hands of those who need them most:  students and teachers.
