Ruth Moir

In 2002 many school systems, due to massive budget cuts, were eliminating music programs from the curriculum. Ruth Moir founded the Steinway Society of Riverside County to help provide some music education, musical experiences and instrumental instruction for the school children in the Coachella Valley.

Every year thousands of school children benefit from the programs we provide to the school districts. We cannot do this without the support of all of the wonderful donors in the Coachella Valley which we would like to knowledge below.

Your donations make it possible for the Steinway Society or Riverside County to bring music to the children of the Coachella Valley.
