Spread the Joys of Making Music

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, MJOMEF has continued to increase the number of elementary schools and students we support in music education.  During  the 2017-18 school year 422 students benefited from MJOMEF’s support.    Our music coaches are active in 10  elementary schools – Bailey Gatzert, Concord International, Highland Park, Kimball,  Leschi, Maple, Northgate, Roxhill, Sanislo and West Seattle.  Additionally, beginning in October 2018 MJOMEF  will provide an in-class coach to the 6th grade strings class at Mercer  Middle School.  On behalf of the students we thank you!
