Simple Gifts is an organization to give the gift of music to underprivileged kids. Coming from a well established and very successful band program, we sometimes take for granted that we were able to begin playing music back in fifth and sixth grade. No one asked questions when we said, "I want to play an instrument", and we were quickly handed a shiny new horn. Simple Gifts recruits high school musicians to teach lessons to beginner students in their area. The profits go towards paying for instruments and lessons for other low-income students in the Houston area who demonstrate ability and desire to allow music into their lives.
"Where words fail, music speaks."
- Hans Christian Andersen
