Musical Mentors
Feb 1997

Musical Mentors is a non-profit charity focused on providing free, quality musical activities for children regardless of their socio-economic status.
We started out in 2007 with a simple and enthusiastic belief:
That if we provided youth with access to quality music lessons that they may not otherwise be able to afford, with mentors who serve as positive role models, most families and children would jump at the chance, and they'd be better off for it. As a result, the ranks of students we have had since 2007 are overflowing with stories of how a music mentorship has positively affected every aspect of their lives. Musical Mentors improves students' work ethic, boosts their motivation to do well in school, brings families of all kinds together in support of their children, and gives our students skills that will last a lifetime.
