Making music education accessible to all students.
Every student should have access to music in school.
Music education let's kids make a joyful noise during the school day, yes. But it also helps them learn, develops social skills and fosters community.
Music education builds skills we use every day in the adult world!
With less funding for arts education, it's now harder for schools to have extra instruments to lend students whose families can't afford to rent or buy one.
That's why we're on a mission to make music education possible for ALL students.

Make Music Twin Cities
A day-long, metro-wide free music festival that takes place on the summer solstice — a day when Minnesotans naturally feel the urge to congregate with their neighbors outside.
Launched in 2016, we are excited to make this fun, community-based celebration an annual Twin Cities happening.
