Instruments of Peace is a nonprofit organization originally founded from Maestro Armand Diangienda's dream of utilizing music to teach "peace and reconciliation". We are dedicated to bringing the gift of music to the most volatile regions of the world, especially to those who have limited or no access to practice and study music.
Our goal is to execute Armand's vision by building music schools, hosting benefit concerts, and distributing in-kind donations such as sheet music and instruments. It is essential that each school is self-sustainable, as we feel our presence and involvement should not be a permanent fixture. Instead, we see ourselves as the musical middlemen, bringing the tools and skills needed for the music to continue playing.
