Since 2001, Nameless Sound has been committed to creative music-making and improvisation as powerful and adaptable tools that can provide frameworks for learning, healing, play and creativity in the most diverse range of communities.

Each year, Nameless Sound works with over 1500 children and young people, including the most underserved and marginalized in our city. Every day, Nameless Sound facilitators work in Houston’s homeless shelters and refugee communities. We offer classes for children with special needs and workshops in Houston’s public schools. In addition to our own staff facilitators, children in these programs have an opportunity to work with some of the premier
international artists in contemporary music who come to Houston to perform in our concert series.

Please make a donation towards Nameless Sound.  We depend on the support of our members.
