Now I Play Along Too is a not for profit foundation (based in Virginia) that focuses on improving the lives of disadvantaged kids through the gift of music. Inspired by the gift of an anonymous person, the alternative rock band MELODIME started the foundation to continue the story and provide opportunities to others that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford them.

The foundation accomplishes this by providing music instruments, instruction, and encouragement to regularly practice and perform music. The rigorous process of learning, practicing, and performing a musical instrument has a dual purpose to build character and discipline to help overcome obstacles.
