100% of proceeds benefit the schools

The revenue generated through CD sales goes directly back into the music program that originated the music and the licensing revenue serves to support the entire HATCH Ostinato Project program. Beyond providing critical support for arts education, the HATCH Ostinato Project engages students in creative thinking and problem solving at a critical age, improving their self-confidence and excitement for their education.
