Play It Forward Founders Nick Simmons & Dave Silva
Play It Forward Music Foundation

Nick Simmons and Dave Silva from Play It Forward Music School are two music teachers who've known each other for about 20 years. They originally met in the guitar class at the community college. They had been talking about for a long time, setting up their own music school, then it turned out that they both had talented students that couldn't afford to continue with lessons, so they decided to create a nonprofit, aimed at offering students in need the music lesson that can make a difference. Then the fires of Santa Rosa happened, and the situation changed. Suddenly there was also a need for instruments.
