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. Established in 2014 by the band Melodime, the goal of the foundation is to provide musical opportunities to individuals that otherwise wouldn't be able to afford them So, they can look back at the obstacles they've overcome and say "Now I Play Along Too"

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.
