A decade ago, Playing For Change was inspired when one man, Roger Ridley, sang familiar words to a popular song: "No matter who you are. No matter where you go in life. At some point, you're gonna need somebody to stand by you." For Co-Founder Mark Johnson, that moment ignited a passion to use music to connect people and to create a better world.
Playing For Change is honored to support the Playing For Change Foundation by sharing their incredible new program with all of you: The Stand By Me Scholarship Program
The Playing For Change Foundation (playingforchange.org) is dedicated to creating positive change through music education. Today, more than 700 children around the world are learning music and dance every week. This is possible because people like you are willing to Stand By Them. Listen to our students and see how music education is affecting their lives in a positive way. Stand By Me Scholarships provide funding for students to attend PFCF music programs for an entire year.
Meet some of our current students; we're sure they will inspire you as they have inspired us.
