Ways to Support

  • Donate today and give the gift of music!

    Music is powerful in mysterious ways. It’s magical ability to captivate the body, illuminate the mind, inspire the spirit, and move and bring people together in ways nothing else does has profound impacts on musician, listener, and the community at large. 

    Every week at Youth Music Project the power of music sings for hundreds of kids in our community in a welcoming, fun, and supportive musical community that they can call their own. Students are encouraged and supported to take risks, make mistakes, experience success, gain confidence, learning, and growing through musical exploration. We know that the gift of music in a child’s life can become the soundtrack they need to power through tough times and celebrate their milestones. That’s why we provide state-of-the-art music education programs free to any student who qualifies for the federal free or reduced lunch program, SNAP benefits or is currently enrolled in foster care – because music creates resilience, understanding, curiosity, confidence, and so much more.

    Please join us in making music accessible to ALL kids!
