Musical instruments

The Music Matters Initiative


Music education matters more than ever before.

Make a Tax Deductible Donation to Raise Funds and Awareness for Music in Our Schools

Much has been written about the benefits playing an instrument can have on both the body and mind—from better grades and improved self-esteem to increased memory and overall happiness. Now, for the first time a recently enacted federal law recognizes the importance of music in school curriculum. With the Every Student Succeeds Act stating that music is an important part of a well-rounded education, school music programs increasingly need our help to help their students succeed.

To further support the efforts of our area music education programs, Heid Music has created another opportunity to bring more music to our schools with our MUSIC MATTERS INITIATIVE. During Music in Our Schools Month (March 1-31, 2017), Heid Music will match individuals’ donations of $5 or more with Heid Music in-store credit to support their preferred school district music program. School districts will then receive the cash donations PLUS up to $500 per district of in-store credit to use towards products and services!

We’re matching up to $10,000 for school music programs in March!

Visit your local Heid Music store to help bring more music to your school district.

Donors will also be recognized throughout the stores. Matching donation valid for school districts in Northeastern, Central and South Central Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula.

For three generations spanning nearly 70 years, music education has been a driving force of Heid Music. More than just a store for all things music, we are proud to be a community music resource in Appleton, Green Bay, Wisconsin Rapids, Oshkosh and Madison.
