Supporting the Moral Imperative of Music Education

The Spirit of Harmony Foundation, Todd Rundgren’s non profit organization, supports the moral imperative of music education and music performance for youth.
We advocate for music education, beginning at the earliest age possible, offered in schools or as after-school programs. The Foundation weaves together the social, biological, economic, and academic benefits accrued to students who are involved in consistent instrument-based music education.
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.


Symposium on the Moral Imperative of Music Education

On Saturday, April 18, 2015, the Spirit of Harmony Foundation hosted a panel to showcase and explore the compelling reasons why children should have access to music education. Leaders in neurological research, sociology, economics, and music education presented their case to an enthusiastic audience of Todd Rundgren fans from around the world, as well as academics, scholars, and musicians, at the State House Convention Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.

The purpose of the Symposium was to further the dialog about music education, and to stimulate activism at a grassroots level. Please click here for more information about our event.
