Musical Outreach by Michael Garber

Giving music to others to lift their spirits and make them feel better!—that’s music outreach.

Welcome to the Tin Pan Alley Project

Tin Pan Alley was the popular music industry that gave us the great songs of 1890 to 1955—everything from “Daisy, Daisy” to “High Hopes,” and including “Over the Rainbow,” “White Christmas,” “Summertime,” and thousands of others!
