KIRK HORN MUSIC FUND
Changing the World by Connecting Kids & Music
The Kirk Horn Music Fund is built on a dream to connect kids around the world; using the benefit of modern technology to teach the kids the value of human connection and collaboration through the universal language of music.
The technology can be placed anywhere with internet – allowing this program to connect kids around the world with the goals of:
Connection – kid ‘jam sessions’ and music lessons creates an opportunity for connection and friendships around the world
Spirituality - recovery and spiritual survival through the healing power of music
Cultural Diversity - Exposure to other cultures, languages, rhythms, and ways of thinking
Collaboration – teaching how to incorporate and respect each other’s ideas and work together to create songs and harmonies
Original Song "It is a Blessing" written and recorded
by Kids in the KHMF
at the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus
Sam Maina aka "StarBiz" was one of the inspirations that would become the KHMF. Sam was a student at Rafiki and his world changed because of music. He wrote and recorded "I Believe" in honor of Kirk. Sam has been writing, producing, engineering, and recording music in Nairobi, Kenya for 5 years. We are so proud of his accomplishments and his desire to make the world a better place with MUSIC and maybe change another kid's world.
