UTICA, N.Y. -- A local musician and head of the Disruption Network wants to give local kids the gift of creating their own music.

He's holding an instrument drive, for Proctor High School students.

Anthony "Zee" Donaldson’s goal is to put an instrument into the hands of every child who'd like to learn to play, and to restock the instrument supply in the Utica School District.

"Music teaches you a lot of things. It teaches you timing, teaches you math, it teaches you creativity, it teaches you hand/eye coordination, it teaches you a lot, other than just to play, it teaches you a lot of things in life,” he said.

You can drop off your unwanted instruments at Big Apple Music, in New Hartford, the Teacher Resource Center, at the Compassion Coalition, on Lafayette street, in Utica, and at the Pizza Box, on South Street, in Utica.
