Spirit of Harmony
The Spirit of Harmony Foundation, Todd Rundgren’s philanthropic organization, focuses on instrument-based music education, beginning at as early an age as possible, for a substantial length of time (minimum two years, and minimum four hours per week). We base our focus on academic studies on the empirical benefits of music education.

The Spirit of Harmony Foundation is based on the universally accepted concept that music is an integral element of the human experience, instrumental in the development of critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, and the formation of lifeskills. We engage directly with the most current and compelling academic research available to document the biological, social, academic, and economic benefits of music education.

The Foundation functions to leverage Rundgren’s philanthropic interests, professorial activities, worldview, vision, talent, celebrity, experience, fan-base, and professional resources to direct much-needed resources to nurture institutional education programs and the individual performer.

The Spirit of Harmony Foundation is unique in that its focus is to be the “mortar not the bricks” in helping match the needs of music programs with the resources they need to excel.
