Music That Moves ME Instrument Donation Project

Each June, Maine Public collects "previously loved" working musical instruments that may be lying about in an attic or garage and gets them into the hands of Maine children who would love to play, but don’t have the resources to either rent or purchase an instrument of their own. Since our instrument drive began, we have collected nearly 1,000 instruments thanks to the generosity of Maine Public's members, listeners, and viewers!

Please contact us at if you happen to have an instrument that you would like to donate to the program.

Below are two videos aired in 2018 that feature some very talented musicians who volunteered to help us spread the word about our instrument program. Enjoy!
