The Kretzer Piano Music Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the gift of music to children and seniors.

“We are passionate about music being a part of every child’s life, and the foundation provides performance opportunities so young artists can share their talents with others,” founder Kathi Kretzer said.

In addition to awarding scholarships for music lessons and donating pianos to disadvantaged children and local children’s charities, KPMF’s programs include the Music for the Mind concert series presented the third Tuesday of every month at CityPlace in West Palm Beach. These concerts feature various musical groups from the area. Beginning in 2002, Music for the Mind has provided more than 11,000 young musicians the opportunity to perform while raising more than $625,000 to help keep music in schools.

Also, the Keyboards for Kids group piano classes are held weekly for 60 inner-city school children at the Center for Creative Education in Pleasant City.
