From legends

Providing Opportunity

The Unity Music Foundation  provides opportunities for young musicians to live out their musical dreams. Relational bridges are built and dreams are fulfilled when young people have experienced professional musicians as their personal mentor and coach. When legendary musicians are able to pass on their knowledge and passion to those just starting out,  it ensures that great music remains a part of the American tradition. 

Impacting the music community

Feeding the Soul

Our foundation also provides noteworthy performances  to support the often overlooked musician, as well as to raise both awareness and funds for other organizations aligned with our purpose to use music as the key to great relationships. Our passion is to help these organizations impact the world. 


Playing in the Key of Life

Our story of fulfilling the ultimate dream

By Sam Beler - "What is your ultimate dream?" I asked my friend Jamie Davis. Jamie is a great jazz singer who has traveled the globe as the lead vocalist for the legendary Count Basie Orchestra. He had joined me for a glass of wine and music at Yoshi's Jazz Club in Oakland Ca. 

His answer was not what I anticipated.
