Tony was a loving father, husband, son, brother and friend to many. In addition to that he spent more than 20 years on the road playing music and meeting people throughout the world. Tony left an impression with those he met with his unique brand of kindness and humility. Our family was overwhelmed by the response of grief people felt over Tony's passing. He was a talented person but there was much more than that. He reached people in a very special way.
As a family we wanted to create something that would honor his legacy while also bringing good to the world. Tony loved children and had a natural gift for interacting with them. With this in mind we thought Tony would love the idea of an organization that promotes music learning in a fun and inspiring way. The Tony Sly Music Foundation For Kids is a registered 501(c) organization that helps to support music education through projects dedicated in his honor.
