About Music Motive:
Music Motive offers private lessons and courses for just about every musical instrument! Our Certified Instructors teach a consistent quality, unmatched in SLO County. Music Motive’s famous Bucket Busters, whose energetic performances thrill crowds all over the Central Coast and raise music scholarship money for kids who otherwise could not afford music lessons.
Music Motive’s Mission: Empower music instructors to draw excellence and inspire music students.
I believe that music is an essential part of our lives. It can help you to express your thoughts and feelings, but it’s also been proven that learning to play a musical instrument helps develop thought processes and brain development. It can make you smarter, reduce stress, and help you to feel better about yourself. A good teacher can potentially launch your music career. They might introduce you to a lifetime of playing an instrument, or possibly give you the opportunity to play music for the very first time! I’m confident that our program and facilities will help you get the most out of your musical experience.
It is my life’s work and sincere honor to share the experience of music and I personally invite you to be a part of it. Together we can keep music alive and vibrant! Will you do your part?
Playing music may be the greatest thing to ever happen in a person’s life. It could be the best investment you will ever make.
-Steve Hilstein, Director

About The Project “HeartBeat 4 Kids”
Since it began publishing 9 years ago, IndiePulse Music Magazine looks to the next generation of Musicians as advocates of positive change. Every Year we at IndiePulse look to collect used musical instruments of all kinds, Guitars, Drums, Amps, stringed and woodwinds to repair and give said instruments to children and young adults under 20 that want to learn music or realize their dreams.
Now, more than before, children have fewer opportunities to get connected to their passion for music due to educational budget cuts, financial hardship and more. With our “HeartBeat 4 Kids” Music Program, we have given in the past few years many instruments to youths that would not otherwise get the chance to learn and enjoy their natural talents.
IndiePulse Music Magazine has connected with Instrument Repair people, whom have volunteered their time to assist us with this project, and we have also received help from Instrument manufactures, but we need the help of the music community. We ask the musical public as well as musicians around the world to consider donating one or more used musical instruments to us for rejuvenation.
