Making Music Matters depends on grants from generous donors and parent fundraising. We need your help to continue to provide lessons for the kids of the Greater Boston area. Each donation, great or small, is a step towards providing these crucial services. Here are some examples of what your gift will do:


  • $25 buys 25 clarinet reeds 

  • $50 provides one student with a flute, clarinet, trumpet or violin for the entire school year, including maintenance!

  • $100 gets 15 students their first music lesson, taught by one of our highly skilled professionals

  • $250 provides 5 students with a flute, clarinet, trumpet or violin to use and practice for the entire school year

  • $500 allows 10 students the chance to study flute, clarinet, trumpet or violin for the entire school year by paying for their instrument rental and routine maintenance.

Please give what you can. Your donation makes a difference!


Did you know that you can donate your used instrument to us? Your instrument will help a

student not just once, but each year, helping us sustain our mission.
