San Diego Music Studio supports music education in whatever way possible. We sponsor local music programs, repair instruments, attend board meetings, donate instruments to schools and individuals, volunteer at events and offer free monthly workshops. We regularly send representatives at the local, state and federal levels to advocate for music education, including an annual meeting in Washington, D.C. to meet with government officals.
We Believe In Music.
We Believe In Our Community.
Philippines Ukulele Project
San Diego Music Studio started the Philippines Ukulele Project in 2018. This project connects local donors to children at risk in the Philippines. We send a teacher to the Philippines, along with donated ukuleles and other items, to conduct classes and provide music instruments to children.
In 2019, San Diego Music Studio was honored with The Music Makes a Difference Award by the National Association of Music Merchants for the Philippines Ukulele Project. We continue throughout the year collecting donated items to ship regularly to the people in the Philippines. We believe that local people can make a worldwide impact. We support out community and others around the world in the pursuit of music education. After all, play them a song, they’ll be happy for a day. Teach them to play, they’ll be happy for a lifetime.
Bryce Houghton Legacy
With a talent for many different instruments, Bryce Houghton became Student of the Month at San Diego Music Studio in 2018. For a school assignment, Bryce was asked what his legacy would be. He wrote that it would be to teach music. In 2019, Bryce and his family were a tragic car accident. Bryce did not survive but his legacy will live on.
Bryce’s personality and enthusiasm for life was inspiring. To keep his inspiration alive, San Diego Music Studio gifted $25,000.00 in repairs to the students of Bryce’s school district. Any district student using a school instrument in need of repair, may have their repair done for free at San Diego Music Studio.
