Please help us better understand the families we serve. The below questions help us offer programming that meets the needs of our students and communities. The below information also helps us raise funds to ensure all lessons, instruments, and enrichment activities are AFFORDABLE or FREE OF CHARGE to students who could not otherwise afford it. 

If parents are not living together but both supporting the student financially, please select "Two parents/guardians".

The following questions help us prioritize applicant needs and best match your student with a Musical Mentor. Please email if you have any questions.

e.g . school band, school music class, group music class after-school, one-on-one instruction, and family member teaching.

We can help provide instruments to students who need them. However, we encourage parents/guardians/organizations to provide an instrument if they are able to do so. Most intermediate to advanced instruments can range from $100-800 depending on the instrument. Many music stores have rental programs or rent to buy programs.

We will get this process moving as soon as the student has been matched with a Musical Mentor.

MMA lessons are typically scheduled after school - often at your student’s school or offered online. What days after school would generally work best for lessons?

i.e. PE, Art, Science, Recess
