The GSI FOUNDATION is a non-profit organization based on the simple idea that every child deserves a music education.

We contribute to this endeavor by providing public schools with the instruments, teaching services, and musical events needed to inspire today’s youth.


We provide music programs with high-quality instruments that make the process of learning enjoyable.


We hire knowledgable and inspiring teachers that actively engage students in the process of learning.


We facilitate inspiring live and recorded performances ranging from student ensembles to world-renown soloists.
