Spread the Joys of Making Music

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, MJOMEF has maintained the number of elementary school students we supporting music education.  During the 2019-20 school year 360 students benefitted from MJOMEF’s support.  Our music coaches are active in 11 elementary schools – Bailey Gatzert, Lowell, Concord International, Highland Park, Kimball,  Leschi, Maple, Northgate, Roxhill, Sanislo and West Seattle.  On behalf of the students we thank you!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and school closures in the spring of 2020, MJOMEF has started to produce learning videos on YouTube to help students practice at home.  These videos will be a helpful resource for all students who are taking elementary instrumental music classes any where.  These videos can be found on YouTube under the MJOMEF channel.
