Tiny Toes Music and the Music Matters Initiative

At Tiny Toes Music, our purpose is to change communities for the better by teaching families to play together through music. All children, regardless of their circumstances or walks of life, deserve the opportunity to experience the joy of music making. Through our outreach initiatives, we seek to serve families in preschool classroom settings who, due to low-income or challenging circumstances, might not otherwise be able to experience our program.

Since the fall of 2014, our partnership with Chicagoland Lutheran Educational Foundation (CLEF), has made it possible for children attending Lutheran Day Nursery and Early Childhood Center, which serves the Logan Square and Humboldt Park neighborhoods in Chicago, to have weekly music classes in their preschool.

Because CLEF is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) organization, fully underwritten by its board members, every dollar donated is tax deductible and will be used to provide high quality music programs at low income preschools.

It is easy to see how much Music Matters first hand during a Tiny Toes Music class. Children and adults sing, dance, and play, all the while laughing and getting to know each other. Over the years, children grow and learn, the bonds between families deepen, and communities are strengthened. We are so fortunate to know the joy and benefit of music making. Donate to the Music Matters Initiative. Let's spread some good, dare to dream big, and work together to continue to make this happen.
