317 Main Community Music Center Believes In The Power Of Music To Change Lives.

Music brings joy, creates hope and fosters community and new opportunities. 


Every day at 317 Main, we see the restorative and empowering effect that music has on people. Music has the power to inspire and bring community members together. Each year, 317 Main touches the lives of thousands of people through music education and cultural enrichment opportunities ranging from lessons to free concerts to community art shows to hosting the Yarmouth Farmers’ Market.

We need your help to:

  • support our free partnership programs with schools other nonprofits in southern Maine,
  • offer financial aid for lessons at our studios,
  • and fill the gap between our tuition and the true cost of the 317 Main experience. About 60% of our $900,000 annual budget comes from tuition and program fees. As a nonprofit, we rely on your donations for the remaining 40%.

YOU Can Make Music For Everyone. Give Today.
