Guitar strings, cables, a bass guitar, and microphones were some of the things we were happy to provide!

Since we started in 2009, we have been blessed to have given so much to our musician friends in multiple countries, including the United States. We really appreciate your support and your interest in what we are about!

Finishing 2017 with gratitude http://www.musicinternational.org/finishings-2017-with-gratitude/ http://www.musicinternational.org/finishings-2017-with-gratitude/#respond Fri, 15 Dec 2017 02:12:59 +0000 http://www.musicinternational.org/?p=143 In 2017, we were able to benefit musicians in three countries, and we are really grateful! Guitar strings, training materials, drum sticks, cymbals, and guitar repair tools are just some of the things we were able to gift to our musician friends.

Our trip to Albania( our fourth) was a great success. We brought $1000.00 worth of equipment and were able to distribute the items to everyone. Again, we are really grateful!

As well, a bass guitar was sent to Cuba, and an electric guitar was sent to India. These gifts were given with great joy, and yes, gratitude!

How Can I Make A Difference? http://www.musicinternational.org/how-can-i-make-a-difference/ http://www.musicinternational.org/how-can-i-make-a-difference/#respond Wed, 21 Sep 2016 16:35:36 +0000 http://www.musicinternational.org/?p=114 When I was struck with the reality of musicians in need back in 2009, one of the first things I did was to begin a search to see who might already be working to aid them. There was only one website I was able to find which happened to be based in the Philippines that was set up to aid musicians…but it was no longer functioning. They had closed up shop. That was a strong indicator to me that it was time for musicians to again be supported.

The needs of musicians are quite hidden to most people. For a majority of us, we go to see and hear some live performance, enjoy it, and go on our way. But, do you know how much an electric guitar cable costs? Do you know how much a set of guitar strings costs? How many musical supply stores are there in northern India? Or anywhere in Albania? In the case of ordering strings, cables, and so forth online, how many companies ship their goods to Albania, Angola, Puerto Rico, or India? I have done the research and know that the answer is: none.

This is the reason I founded Music International. We are here to provide training and supplies, open closed doors and give a support base to musicians. There are several ways that you can support us as we support them. If you simply give financially, there is the incentive of income tax deduction. There is also the option of supporting us through Amazon Smile. This is a segment of Amazon that sells all the same goods you would find at the traditional Amazon site, but at this location, Amazon gives to us. We have a link right here on our site.

Please consider supporting musicians. They bring so much into our lives. We are here for them!

An Amazing Time in Albania! http://www.musicinternational.org/an-amazing-time-in-albania/ http://www.musicinternational.org/an-amazing-time-in-albania/#respond Fri, 10 Jun 2016 13:51:33 +0000 http://www.musicinternational.org/?p=81 June 1-3 was such a tremendous time shared with nearly 90 musicians. We were so glad to have made the sacrifices needed to do this! These are passionate musicians who have never had so much as a single voice, guitar, or piano lesson in their lives. The time spent here, as well as the relationships begun here, were all worth the time, work, and finances that our supporters poured into it! Thank you for your involvement! We ask that you consider further support for these musicians, and others like them We exist for this very reason: to provide training and equipment for those who have always lacked them. Your gifts are tax deductible, and very needed. Thank you very much!2016-06-03 21.20.002016-06-02 16.09.342016-06-03 10.57.362016-06-01 10.49.28
