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

    From October 8 through October 20, 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 October 8 through October 20, 2018.

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

    Turn in your practice sheets and donation envelopes from October 22 through October 27, 2018.

  • Goal

    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 40 percent of students receive tuition-free education through the tuition assistance program.
