Now I Play Along Too (NIPAT) is a not for profit charity that focuses on improving the lives of disadvantaged kids through the gift of music. Inspired by the gift of an anonymous person, the band Melodime started the charity to continue the story and provide opportunities to others that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford them.
NIPAT accomplishes this by providing music instruments and funding for lessons to regularly practice and perform music. We believe the rigorous process of learning, practicing, and performing a musical instrument has a dual purpose to build character and discipline to help overcome obstacles.
