What is Free Music School?


We are a group of volunteer "Music Mentors" who meet once a week, on Friday afternoons, to teach students in grades 4-12 how to play a musical instrument.  Please see our Program Details page for more information.

How to join our program:


Our next enrollment/orientation session will take place on Friday, August 30th, at 4 pm.  This is the ONE TIME during the year that we accept new students -- don't miss it, and don't be late! Both students and parents should attend this session, which will last approximately 1 1/2 hours.
