“Neighborhood Music School is more than a school. It’s a community, a platform for artistic development and a place that I am proud to call my home.”

– Tyler Jenkins, Percussion student and Premier Jazz Ensemble Member

During this challenging time, NMS is doing its best to continue to serve our community. Like many, we face uncertain times ahead that could have a significant impact on our financial health and sustainability. Your support during our temporary closure would make the world of difference. Your gift would be used to help us continue to find solutions to virtual instruction, assist in paying our faculty who are no longer able to teach and help those families maintain lesson continuity despite facing sudden financial changes due to COVID-19. As we all continue to adapt to these changing times, we are grateful for your support and that of our NMS family. We are thankful to know that our community is hard at work, caring for each other and spreading kindness. We look forward to seeing you in our halls again.

  • Student Scholarship: NMS teaches hundreds of students whose families can’t afford to pay for their lessons. You can make it possible for one deserving student to learn, grow and gain new skills – for a month, a year, or three years – by donating a scholarship for a student who needs it.
  • Program Sponsorship: Support one or more of our tuition-free programs with a special donation of $1,000 or more. We will gladly recognize you as a program sponsor in print materials as well as on our website, and provide regular updates on your program’s activities!
  • Faculty Support: Help support NMS’s great gift to the region: our top-notch faculty! Our 130 dedicated teaching artists combine advanced training in their fields with their ability to create magic of the arts for students of all ages.
