A: Throw an annual Rock n’ Roll carnival in your backyard with great music, comedy, and art and then invite everyone you know to come and hang and donate money.

Q: What do you do when the kids you’re supporting graduate from high school and your programs are successful?

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. Now, we want to do a fundraising night in a private living room... featuring you! We want to magically turn your performance  into cold hard cash that makes music happen for Musack kids. It'll be an amazingly gratifying and fun experience. What are you waiting for!?

But it doesn’t happen without you! All we need from you is to come to our Hancock Park neighborhood living room and play some tunes. We have processional tech support and a grand piano and will take care of everything else. 

Think about it -- you play some songs  in a living room, and hundreds of kids get to have music lessons! We promise this will be one of the funnest, most different-est shows 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 Strummer or Baez or Bonham or Bootsy thanks to you.

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

We want to build a community of talented kids around the country that rock, rap, and jam (together or alone) their way to greatness. We want to empower these kids to share their stories via music. And we want you to be a part of it, starting with your performance at the 2018 Rock n' Roll Carnival.
