Welcome!

The Central Music Academy is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that gives free musical training--in all areas of musical performance and to all levels of learners--to low-income children in Lexington, Kentucky.

Between now and June 30, 2019, a private foundation is offering CMA a dollar-for-dollar match, up to $30,000: they will match any amount given by new donors. For 2018 supporters, the foundation will match any amount above their 2018 gifts. Pledged amounts do not have to be paid until December 31st.

To be accepted onto CMA's student roster, children must qualify for free or reduced lunches at school and be between the ages of 8 and 18.

Since CMA’s inception in 2004, our dedicated teachers have given over 35,000 free lessons to more than 950 students. Please check out the video below for more information!
