Matching Grant Challenge

A local foundation has challenged CMA to a $30,000 matching grant! We need your help to reach our goal by June 30, 2017. The foundation will match any amount given by new donors. For 2016 supporters, the foundation will match any amount above their 2016 gifts.

Since CMA’s inception in 2004, our dedicated teachers have given over 30,000 free lessons to more than 900 students. Please check out the video below for more information!

Welcome to the Central Music Academy!

The Central Music Academy is a non-profit 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.

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