  • Become a member of our Cowbell Club!

  • How does your support help? Here at Youth Music Project, we provide access to high-quality rock, pop, and country music lessons for all children, regardless of family income. Currently, half of YMP students receive tuition assistance for their tuition and instrument rental. YMP students receive a lifetime return on your investment! Music education helps children to develop the skills they need to grow into thriving, self-sufficient adults by promoting flexibility, problem-solving, communication, the ability to grasp new concepts, commitment to goals, creativity, innovation and the dedication to strive toward excellence. Studying music builds intellectual and emotional skills, facilitates learning and strengthens other academic areas; such as reading and math.

  • Your tax-deductible gift provides K-12 students with low cost and free music lessons, free instruments on loan and outstanding performance opportunities. Thanks to you, every child at YMP can reap a lifetime of benefits!

  • The Area of Greatest Need Fund

    Without our Area of Greatest Need Donors, Youth Music Project wouldn’t exist! When you make a contribution to this fund, we apply your gift where it’s needed most. Your gift could help pay for a low-income child’s first music lesson,  an end-of-term student concert or free community events. It could even help pay the electric bill! Which might not sound glamorous, but it sure is tough to play the electric guitar without electricity!

    Every gift to this fund helps our students realize their dreams and find their inner musician. With support from generous people like you, we guide over 1,200 unique students through an encouraging, energizing and inspiring music education.

    Methods of Giving are at the bottom of this page or here. They include Debit or Credit Card, Check, eCheck, Stock Transfer, In-kind Contribution and Vehicle Donation.

  • Tuition Assistance Fund

    Our mission at Youth Music Project is to provide outstanding, rock, pop, and country music education for youth by offering Tuition Assistance which can include low-cost or free instruction, free instrument use and exceptional performance opportunities for students on the free/reduced school lunch program.  

    In 2015, over 900 registrations for music lessons at Youth Music Project will be paid for with tuition assistance. With the support of our generous Tuition Assistance Fund donors, YMP is able to provide financial assistance to low-income students and watch them soar!

  • Instrument & Equipment Fund

    We are proud to offer free instrument rental to current students who qualify for free or reduced lunch at school. As our enrollment number grows, we find ourselves in dire need of quality, kid-sized instruments and equipment. Most of our new students are between preschool and the 6th grade. Their little hands just don’t fit around the necks of most instruments made for adults which makes it impossible to form chords or strum strings. 

    Youth Music Project currently requires over 50 instruments and the accompanying equipment such as amps, cables, and music stands. It is through the generosity of Instrument & Equipment Fund donors like you that we can provide these instruments. Please, put a right-sized musical instrument into the little hands of a child today! Please visit our GoFundMe campaign and make an aspiring musician’s dreams come true!

  • If you have a kid-sized instrument that your child has outgrown or is sitting around collecting dust, we gratefully accept donations! Not only is your donation tax-deductible but it will be given to a student in need. Take a look at our Needs List here.

  • Tools for Teachers Fund

    The Tools for Teachers fund provides the materials to teachers that will inspire young musicians to learn. At Youth Music Project, we teach students how to play and perform their favorite songs. This great motivator keeps them excited about their weekly lessons and practicing at home. The Finale software and teacher workstation our organization needs, enables YMP teachers to produce the music that students want to learn; on their specific instrument and at their level. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Curriculum development, standardized benchmarks, consistency among classes, and improved student outcomes are all possible with the adoption of this technology.
