Fund for Music Education

Play an Instrumental Role in the Future of Music Education

Kaufman Music Center educates young people in music so they can become innovative thinkers, engaged citizens, and dynamic leaders who make the world a better place. Each year, we help more than 4,000 children and teenagers discover a lifelong love of music.

The Fund for Music Education ensures that talented children can access our outstanding education programs, regardless of their financial means. At Kaufman, children from all backgrounds can:

  • Gain an Immersive Music Education tuition-free at Special Music School (M. 859), a K-12 public school for musically-gifted children and teens;
  •  Receive a Scholarship for music, dance, and theater studies at Lucy Moses School, NYC’s largest community arts school;
  • Perform Music by Living Composers as part of Face the Music, a youth new music ensemble;
  • Explore Musical Theater through Broadway Playhouse, which presents concerts free of charge to students from NYC’s severely underserved Title I public schools; and
  • Enjoy a Strong In-School Music Education in East Harlem through Opus 118 Harlem School of Music.
