For my Bar Mitzvah project, I am collecting sheet music for an organization called MusAid, which distributes music and instruments to developing countries around the world. MusAid also holds music workshops in those places. I am doing this Bar Mitzvah project because I have had the opportunity to learn how to play four instruments. I love music and I think that everyone should get the opportunity to learn to play music. MusAid's mission is to use music as a tool for social transformation by providing high quality musical education to at-risk children and youth. -Jake L MusAid is a 501(c)3 non-profit, registered in both the USA and Canada, that provides musical institutions in under-resourced parts of the world with volunteer music teachers and donated instruments and materials. They work closely with music schools to determine what their specific needs are and then devise a plan that will lead to the school’s long term sustainability. Arts are more crucial now than ever before. Globalization has shrunk the world, increasing the need to preserve cultural diversity and identity.
