Nationally known music educator Cheryl Lavender said, “The fact that children can make beautiful music is less significant than the fact that music can make beautiful children.” At the Tucson Youth Music Center, time spent learning to play and sing leads TYMC children to moments of musical success and dreams of a rewarding future that might not otherwise be possible.
We see these transformations every day in our music education charity.
With your financial support, the TYMC Board of Directors, teachers, and volunteers can continue to “create beautiful children.”
Please consider joining us in our mission to enrich the lives of underserved youth in the greater Tucson area through quality music education.
Many thanks for your kind consideration.
Your generous monetary contribution, managed by the TYMC Board of Directors, is a compelling message to like-minded business and civic leaders about the vital role of music education in our community. Funding is used to support existing and aspirational programmatic initiatives, replace and repair worn-out instruments, recruit more teachers, and acquire online and in-person supplies.View Options
