Our Story

The Certain Sparks Music Foundation (CSMF) is a federally recognized 501 (c) (3), non-profit organization. Our mission is to educate kids of all ages, about the value of music to their communities.

The Certain Sparks Music Foundation sponsors weekly music lessons for kids in the CASA Foster Care Program (Santa Maria Location), funds a student hosted Youth Open Mic, and provides opportunities for performance and enrichment throughout the year.

For over a decade, Randall Sena and his team at Certain Sparks Music has mentored local artists through every aspect of the music-making process.

Certain Sparks Music currently provides music lessons to 125+ students of all ages per week.

Students learn why music matters, and how they can have a role in creating it. The lessons teach teamwork, hard work, leadership, and are a ton of fun!
