Not every kid that wants to play music gets the chance to because of lack of financial resources, or music programs being cut from school curriculums for lack of funding. The Tabarrini Foundation’s goal is to enrich and transform the lives of deserving children in Southwest Florida, by nurturing them in the joy of making music through group guitar lessons.
The Tabarrini Foundation survives solely on donations and fundraisers with no government grants or assistance. Find out more at
