Our Mission

No harm. The only belief we foster is the one of self.

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
― T. S. Eliot

So, let’s listen to some music along the way.

Whatever music or whoever you are, it matters. The music that is, and comes from you, is celebrated here.


Children make meanings about themselves and life at very early ages. These meanings, positive or negative, can mold the fabric of their lives sometimes in very harmful or disproportional ways.

The Tin Can Foundation seeks to understand, then implement meaningful ways to offer music through these developmental periods reinforcing inherent self-worth and the joy and wonder of life.


Every musical note has a root or foundation. Every culture has this foundational relationship with music. This music has mental, physical, and spiritual value and power within each culture. The Tin Can Foundation seeks to harness this strength and wellness and apply it in the now, and to capture its beauty for future generations. We aspire to reach at risk children, who may encounter social or mental challenges and offer the opportunity to discover and explore the positive force found in music.


As we continue to explore the limitless possibilities of sound, we invite you to join us in this harmonious journey. There’s a place for everyone in the symphony of support and understanding we are creating. Together, let’s discover the transformative power of sound and its capacity to enrich our lives and communities.
