MYSO’s mission is to nurture, challenge and inspire young minds through music, profoundly changing lives and our community for the better. As generous donors, please join us in developing confidence, teamwork, problem solving, and discipline in our students, skills that will last them a lifetime. Paraphrasing the great violin instructor Shinichi Suzuki, our goal is not to develop professional musicians, but to make good citizens and build beautiful hearts.
MYSO cannot rely on fees alone to support its outstanding students and programs. Member fees cover one-third of the actual costs of our programs. Whatever amount you graciously donate will make a difference. Help us continue our policy of being open to all who wish to explore their musical talents, regardless of their ability to pay.
