Story

In August 2020, Lift Music Fund was started to address the racial inequity in the field of music. We saw how this intersected with the racial wealth gap in our country.

Even before a student reaches the pre-professional level, financial barriers can prevent aspiring musicians from even taking the first steps toward a career in music.

Why?

Because music is expensive.

A good student flute is $1,000; a professional model is $15,000. Weekly private lessons range from $50-$100 per hour. A set of decent cello strings can set you back $250. A box of saxophone reeds costs $35.

When you consider these expenses it becomes clear why careers in music usually develop out of a place of privilege.

This isn't fair.

We believe that every student should have the opportunity to realize their full potential in music.

That is why we created Lift Music Fund.

Our mission is to make achievement in music more accessible and equitable.

We help underrepresented students overcome the barriers, financial and otherwise, to pursuing a career in music.

Join us in supporting the next generation of musicians.
