Music Education Programs

MJOMEF hires professional musicians(coaches) to assist school music teachers and students during their regularly scheduled band and strings classes.  Our coaches are vetted professional musicians who are dedicated to teaching. It is nearly impossible for one music teacher to teach twelve 4th and 5th graders who are playing 3 to 5 different instruments, including flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, in a 30-minute class. With assistance from the MJOMEF coaches, the music teacher is able to keep the class moving forward while the coaches assist individual students. As a result, all students realize success and remain fully engaged throughout the class. MJOMEF’s coaches provide support in the following ten elementary schools in Seattle:

  • Bailey Gatzert Elementary School
  • Concord International Elementary School
  • Emerson Elementary School
  • Highland Park Elementary School
  • James Baldwin Elementary School
  • Kimball Elementary School
  • Lowell Elementary School
  • Madrona Elementary School
  • Maple Elementary School
  • Martin Luther King  Elementary School
  • Roxhill Elementary School
  • Sandpoint Elementary School
  • Saniflo Elementary School
  • West Seattle Elementary School

MJOMEF is similarly sending coaches to enrich the music program twice a week supporting a 2-hour band and 2-hour orchestra class at Franklin High School.

Coordination with Seattle Public Schools

Our program was developed in coordination with Seattle Public Schools’ Visual and Performing Arts Department staff.
