Supporting a Love of Music

Together we can help realize our students’ potential and dreams!

Too many students will not meet their full artistic potential because, for them, equal opportunities do not exist.

But not all is lost! Let me tell you about one of our students, Miguel.

Miguel started his artistic journey in 4th grade at the Adams School in East Boston. Unbeknownst to him on one very typical, sunny autumn day, he would experience something that would change his life forever. A new 4th grade music class started with a Music Center instructor, who at the start of the class handed Miguel a violin (his first ever).

Miguel fell immediately in love.

Even though he ardently practiced the violin, it was his passion for music that stood out to others. Miguel’s mother knew after hearing his first school performance that his talent needed additional instruction beyond what his school could provide.

Knowing they could not afford private lessons, Miguel and his mother came to the Music Center. Our faculty immediately saw not only Miguel’s gifts, but also more importantly, his drive and aspiration. The Music Center quickly presented Miquel with a generous scholarship for private lessons, evidence that our staff and supporters believe that all students should have access to music education.

Thousands of other students in Boston don’t have any form of music education. Don’t let them settle for this!

Make a gift today so students like Miguel can experience music education for the first time.

In addition, become a sustaining donor and make a monthly pledge of $20, $50, or even $100, providing the Music Center with critical financial support on a recurring basis.

Gifts can be easily made online at or simply return your gift in the pre-addressed envelope. Thank you for your support from your friends at the Music Center!
