The Music Makers Foundation provides students of all ages with unique music education and performance opportunities, allowing them to interact with world-class artists across the globe.
Founded in 2007, the Music Makers Foundation began providing music lessons to talented, under-privileged students in East Cambridge, Massachusetts. Students were given private lessons and participated in small student bands. The program was a huge success, and students began performing in nationally recognized music halls throughout the Boston area.
In 2008, Music Makers Foundation expanded, hosting programs in cities across the country. Working with over 600 students over the course of several weeks, the programs provided high-schoolers the opportunity to work alongside the critically acclaimed artists in rehearsals and workshops on contemporary techniques and improvisation. Students and guest artists performed together in a concert finale in each city.
As of 2011, the foundation has reached over 2500 students in 13 states, with three permanent educational facilities in the Boston Metro area and programs scheduled internationally. While school music programs across the country face drastic budget cuts, the Music Makers Foundation provides unique and inspiring music education to students throughout the world. We hope that you will consider joining our team or supporting our efforts.
