    Help Youth Music Project, get great at music — and earn amazing prizes!

    From November 20 through December 2, we are inviting Youth Music Project Students to keep track of their practice time and to ask their parents, family, and friends to sponsor them by making a donation. This is your chance to support Youth Music Project’s music programs, your music teachers, and the tuition-assistance program.

  • How it works

    • Ask parents, relatives, parents’ coworkers, neighbors, or friends to sponsor you.

    • Track your practice time from November 20 through December 2.

    • Collect cash or checks from sponsors, or have them go online to make their donation.

    Turn in your practice sheets and donation envelopes from December 4 through December 9.

  • Goal

    Our goal is to raise $15,000. Each student can help make this possible by setting a personal goal of $100 or more — if you practice for 200 minutes, you need just 5 pledges at 10 cents per minute!

    Youth Music Project provides music education to more than 1,500 students each year at just a fraction of the actual cost of the programs – and 34 percent of students receive tuition-free education through the tuition assistance program.
