Supporting the Moral Imperative of Music Education

  • Todd performs with University of Notre Dame Class President Corey Robinson during his residency,

 

The Spirit of Harmony Foundation supports the moral imperative of music education, weaving together the biological, social, academic, and economic benefits to young people who are involved in consistent instrument-based institutional music lessons and performance. Our organization focuses on networking, as we help match the practical and varied needs of music education programs with the resources that will help them excel.

We believe in providing opportunities for personal development and self-expression through the support of music and music education for young people regardless of socioeconomic status, geographic location, or ability.

“I never waited for something to happen—I just went out and did it. I didn’t wait for acclaim or affirmation or anything like that. I always kept myself busy and wrote music. Some people think that success only comes through the front door, so they’re waiting at that door. Truth is, sometimes it comes in the back door, so don’t worry about it. Just keep busy and do what you’re meant to do. If you do that, it’ll all come together.”– Spirit of Harmony Foundation Founder and President Todd Rundgren in Guitar World, June 2015
