317 Main Community Music Center collaborates with k-12 schools and other educational nonprofits to co-design and implement music education programs that give young people opportunities to express themselves in creative, audible ways. We build projects in which students take healthy risks in supportive environments, develop 21st century skills, and build new relationships through music.
High-quality, small group music instruction contributes to deeper student engagement and boosts overall academic achievement, so we strive to break down financial, geographic, cultural, and other barriers that might keep a student from finding their musical voice.
Partnership programs are core to 317 Main’s mission of making music accessible to all. These programs are generously supported by foundation grants and community donations as well as contributions from our partnering organizations.
