Spread the Joys of Making Music

Spread the Joys of Making Music

Thanks to the generous support of the Michael J Owen family and our MJOMEF donors, elementary school students continue receiving support in music education in 10 elementary schools. — Lowell, Concord International, Highland Park, Kimball, Leschi, Maple, Northgate, Roxhill, Emerson, and Laurelhurst. Beginning in September 2020 MJOMEF coaches also began supporting band and orchestra classes at Franklin High school. On behalf of the students, we thank you!

During Seattle public school closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, beginning March 2020, MJOMEF shifted its focus from in-school coaching and produced music educational videos on YouTube to help students practice at home. Our dedicated professional musicians/educators created 93 U-Tube videos teaching early learning in 9 instruments for elementary school students.   All of the videos are free for use by students and teachers anywhere. By the fall of 2021 there were just under 5000 viewings of the videos. . Visit the MJOMEF YouTube channel to explore all of the instrument practice videos!  Seattle public schools have reopened this fall 2021 and MJOMEF is busy working to match our music coaches to support the school music classes again.
