CIRCLES AROUND THE SUN


Did you know that music can accelerate child brain development and strengthen intellectual, emotional, and motor skills, as well as overall literacy? Bringing music into the classroom can help kids explore the mind-body connection and become comfortable with self-expression. Sadly, many children’s music programs are lacking in the resources they need to let kids explore this creative space. That's why Osiris is happy to partner with The Mockingbird Foundation. 

Founded in 1996, The Mockingbird Foundation is a volunteer-run non-profit organization dedicated to improving access to music education for America’s youth. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to dozens of music education programs, and funds those grants through a combination of fundraising, publishing, and the curation of Phish.net, one of the earliest Internet fan communities. 

Mockingbird is entirely volunteer, with no staff, no salaries, and no office - so every dollar really does make a difference in providing children’s music programs with the staffing, instruments, and support they need. The foundation gives over 100 - 150,000 dollars every year in grants. To donate or to learn more, visit mbird.org. That’s M-B-I-R-D - dot- org
