Music affects us in many ways.  Music can make us think.  Music can make us remember.  Music can motivate us.  And music can make is laugh.  This collection of videos shows the amazing capacity of humans to use music to thrill, amaze, and entertain.  If you discover a video you think deserves to join this collection, please contact us.

The Phillips Music Guild of Indianapolis benefits from the great generosity of Indianapolis musicians who give freely of their time to support the Guild's education mission.  Nonetheless, we do incur a considerable expense to offer these programs.

There are significant costs for facility access, music purchases, instruments, insurance, and administrative costs, for example.  We depend on gifts from granting organizations and many individuals who want to see our mission fully achieved in the community.

The Phillips Music Guild of Indianapolis is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity

If you are able to make a financial contribution to the Guild, we encourage online donations using a credit card, we welcome donations via the secure PayPal site:

We also gladly accept donations of musical instruments in any condition. If the instrument is suitable for student instruction, we put it to use directly. If the instrument is not suitable for student use, we will sell the instrument to provide funds for the Guild's ongoing operation. If you would like to make an instrument donation, please contact us.
