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, in 2023/24, elementary school students continue receiving support in music education in 14 elementary schools. — Bailey Gatzert, Concord International, Emerson, Highland Park, James Baldwin, Kimball, Lowel, Madrona, Maple, Martin Luther King, Roxhill, Sandpoint, Saniflo, and West Seattle. Since 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. Visit the MJOMEF YouTube channel to explore all of the instrument practice videos!
