Music Scholarship Program

Music education, as an educational endeavor, is a long-term process.  When we open the door to the world of music for a child, we believe we have a responsibility, commitment and moral obligation to ensure it does not close on them.  By accepting new children into our program, we commit ourselves to their long-term growth and development.  Therefore, when making a donation, please consider positively a commitment of at least three to five years.

Donation of Musical Instruments
We seek assistance in acquiring instruments which can be loaned out to students for their use.  To this end, we are grateful for donations which enable us to purchase instruments. Acquisition of instruments places an additional financial burden on many families. Access to quality instruments rewards the students for their progress and achievements, and enables their growth and development.
