  • Central Music Academy provides free private music lessons to low-income children whose families can’t afford them.

  • Since its inception in 2004, CMA has given over 35,000 free lessons to more than 950 students.

  • In May 2017, CMA was named a Finalist for the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award. Click here for more information about this national recognition.
  • The musical experience is powerful enough. But we’ve also witnessed the broader impact that the one-on-one training, the joy, the discipline and confidence building have on a student’s future.

  • 100% of CMA’s students graduate from high school.

  • 98% continue to college, often with scholarships.

  • This year CMA is able to reach 120 students and their families. There are 60+ children on the waiting list, still dreaming of their chance to have private lessons.

  • Would you consider donating the cost of one lesson ($25)? Any amount will be gratefully received.

  • Can you help us spread the word about CMA and meet a matching grant of $30,000 before June 30?

  • Because CMA is a nonprofit, your gift is tax deductible.
