Let’s Build our Scholarship Fund to Increase Music Education Access for Students!

For this year’s Give to the Max Day project, Walker West is raising funds for our scholarship fund. Students can access tuition assistance and scholarships for a variety of offerings: our early childhood education program for ages 0-6, private lessons, jazz and string ensemble participation, summer camps, and more essential, enriching musical opportunities. Beginner lessons cost around $40 each or $1,850 per year, which is simply not accessible to every student, and Walker West doesn't turn anyone away due to lack of funds to pay. Help us build our scholarship fund to provide all students with access to quality music education, rooted in community!

Our goal is to raise $10,000 - help by scheduling or making your gift today!
