Spread the Joys of Making Music

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, MJOMEF has doubled the support it provides to music education in elementary schools.  This year, 396 students are benefitting from MJOMEF compared to 185 last year.  Our music coaches are active in 3 new elementary schools – Bailey Gatzert, Leschi and Maple – resulting in a total of 10 schools served.  We have expanded our support for string classes to 4 additional schools – Concord, Highland Park, Roxhill and Sanislo.  On behalf of the students we thank you!
