Greetings! I am Michael L. Butler, the visionary Founder and esteemed Executive Director behind the enchanting world of the I Love Music Tour. My journey is a harmonious blend of my profound love for music and my deep-rooted passion for nurturing the talents of young artists.

With an unwavering devotion to the art of music, I wear the badge of an "avid music lover" with pride. But I also embrace my inner "band nerd" – a title that brings me closer to the intricate rhythms and melodies that define our lives.

My legacy in the world of music doesn't stop at the I Love Music Tour. I also proudly hold the title of Founder of the Teal Sound Drum and Bugle Corps in the heart of Jacksonville, Florida, where I orchestrated the notes of success for eight remarkable years. This journey acquainted me with the pivotal role of fundraising and marketing in sustaining artistic programs, igniting my determination to empower the arts through education.

As I delved deeper into the music industry, a realization dawned upon me – the need for transformative platforms where budding artists can shine. And thus, the I Love Music Tour was born, bridging the worlds of artistry and opportunity. It's a harmonious fusion where both artists and enthusiasts benefit, creating an unforgettable experience for all.

Our aspirations are not confined to stages and melodies alone. We aim to cultivate the I Love Music Tour into a national phenomenon, influencing policymakers and stakeholders alike. Together, we strive to showcase the undeniable importance of music in the lives of students and the broader realm of education.

Our dedicated team works tirelessly to make this musical odyssey accessible and memorable for everyone. We believe in the power of music to inspire, educate, and connect.

But, dear reader, we can't achieve this grand symphony alone. We invite you to join us in this melodious mission. With your support, we can amplify the voices of Music Education, ensuring that they resonate far and wide.

Thank you for considering this invitation to create a harmonious world through music.

In harmonious unity,

Michael L. Butler
Founder and Executive Director of I Love Music Tour
