A: Set up college scholarships and expand as fast as you can.Start spreading the music from coast to coast and set up Musack programs wherever kids need them. So far that includes Los Angeles, Compton, Appalachia, Haiti, Cuba, Alaska, Australia,Tampa, Oakland, Chattanooga, and Native American reservations across the Southwest US.

Q: So why are we sending all this information to you?

A: Well, every year for 7 years in LA, we've hosted a casual backyard fundraising mini-Coachella experience that is unlike any other event for the performers and the attendees - all for a great cause. We want you to help! We want to magically turn your participation into cold hard cash that makes music happen for Musack kids while showcasing your brand. It'll be an amazingly gratifying and fun experience. What are you waiting for!?

concert + carnival + doing good things

 
 

Set in a big park-like backyard in the middle of Los Angeles's Hancock Park neighborhood, the Rock n' Roll Carnival always features a full day of amazing bands, children’s activities, food, art, and comedy. But it doesn’t happen without our sponsors! Think about it -- you contribute to a one-of-a-kind mini-Coachella, and hundreds of kids get music lessons! We promise this will be one of the funnest, most different-est events you do this year. This is your chance to help get music in the hands and hearts of kids who need it. Help them sing their stories and have a voice. Maybe one of them will become the next Dylan or Hendrix or Ramone or Baez or Bonham or Strummer or Fatboy or Bootsy or Lamar or some crazy hybrid of all of them thanks to you.


More Than Just a Concert

From guitar lessons, to comedy, to art, and family-friendly fun, this is not your average gig.

And, it's all to make music happen around the world! We've been written up in Billboard Magazine, the Hollywood Reporter, Thrillist, LA Weekly, and Relix. We'd love to have you come and be part of the day.

Musack's Mission

Musack's mission is to give kids and teens a voice through music by providing guitars, drums, and support for music teachers - wherever the need arises. So many musicians credit their first guitar with saving their lives. We have the chance to provide that guitar. We MAKE MUSIC HAPPEN. We take our cue from Woody Guthrie, 


This machine kills Fascists!
This machine…empowers.
This machine…inspires.
This machine…changes lives!

Musack's History

ACK_NHS_lab.jpg

Writer/producer Donick Cary (Simpsons/Parks and Recreation/Silicon Valley) began Musack with a simple vision: raise money to fund musical programs for his hometown high school on Nantucket Island. After a rash of teen suicides on the island Donick thought about how he and his friends got through their teen years. Music. Enter Musack which in 2009 began providing Nantucket’s high schoolers with guitars and music lessons as a way to help them tell their stories. Taking our cue from the kids, we quickly expanded to include drums and other music and arts programs. Our programs then quickly spread to a variety of different locations worldwide.


Musack's Success

•1000+ students engaged in 400+ lessons annually

•Programs supported worldwide -Nantucket, Compton, LA, Haiti, Appalachia, Australia, Cuba, Alaska, Chattanooga, Tampa, Native American Southwest, and Oakland... so far.

•Six (and counting) Musack scholarship recipients pursuing music-related degrees
