Sidney York is partnering with the Alberta Music Education Foundation (AMEF) in support of Keyboards for Kids, a program providing musical instruments and lessons to children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it. We want to make sure every kid has the chance to make music a part of their lives – just like we did. And you can help!

We want to get those old instruments collecting dust in your basement directly into the hands of future musical geniuses… so we’re doing a Keyboard Drive across BC and Alberta – literally a drive! – where we’ll be collecting unwanted keyboards and string instruments (violins, violas, cellos, & accessories) all along the way. Through Keyboards for Kids and AMEF, they’ll go directly to kids who can’t WAIT to get playing.

Musical instruments want to be played – it’s their destiny! And you’ll feel good knowing that keyboard that once helped you get a date (or, um…filled your heart with joy…) is going to go to good use and possibly change a child’s life forever! That’s TWO destinies fulfilled (three if you also got the date).

We’ll both be there at each of the following drop-off locations to thank you in person – and maybe even play a little tune on your keyboard to send it off right.
