Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Without the help of Big Band Masters Foundation and the donors who stand behind it, music played by kids in school music programs as well as music played by professional musicians in our local communities...will be lost forever!We must come to understand that music in our community and music programs in our school are tied together and that efforts to save one without the other will result in both disappearing together.
Big Band Masters Foundation For Education is a non-profit corporation established in 2012. We are a group of people. Many are musicians, teachers, and people from all walks of life that appreciate the Arts!
We are unique because we believe that what is supported in the community, will be supported in the schools. We took a look around at the community and noticed venues and clubs that previously had bands and musicians of all types - now primarily only have.....a DJ!

Big Band Masters Foundation For Education wants music to be fun and "cool" for band students again. Big Band Masters Foundation For Education wants real music to exist in the community as an ongoing, regular activity so people can have a choice and be able to experience live music.
Whether we are listening or dancing to the music of real, live musicians.......haven't we all noticed there is a big, big difference in the fun, energy, and creativity experienced during a live performance vs. a one person operator (DJ) pushing the on/off button on a sound board?
The answer is a resounding YES!
