MusicGives has a simple goal of demonstrating the importance of music education - an initiative started by Hayden McHugh has a goal of giving kids the same experience he had growing up, and inspiring kids to aim to be the best performers and musicians they can be. By attending markets and collaborating with local musicians and events, MusicGives is able to provide enhancements on already existing programs throughout the city, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Calgary, create new programs where necessary, and provide resources for schools who might need direction on how to reach their kids with valuable and applicable information about music and potential careers.

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing tonight was. The girls LOVED (the instructor) and it was such an incredible thing for them to
experience together. Everyone at MusicGives has such a heart of gold and I’m so blessed to have you guys contributing to our program. I can’t wait to do more!

But what do you DO?

We use our events as a platform to demonstrate our huge variety of local talent (youth and otherwise) and many different performance styles, to assist with our fundraising and awareness, as well as provide us a chance to feature other projects in the city that we think are doing a great job!

From assistance to meeting the curriculum standard or the creation of new music programs in your school or facility, MusicGives is here! Whether it's simply resources and knowledge that you need, or just a quick brainstorm session, MusicGives has the connections and opportunity to provide you what is missing. 

We partner with many organizations around the city that consistently demonstrate a love and appreciation for music education. 

Our brand ambassadors represent us at their shows and online, providing awareness and additional sales while still earning income through merchandise.

We are on the hunt for a few volunteer individuals to join our team: those roles include Education Coordinator, Fundraising Coordinator or Event Assistants.
