Music Works Northwest is a non-profit community music school dedicated to providing accessible music education and experiences. For over 50 years Music Works has offered individual music instruction, music classes, summer camps and free concerts to thousands of King County residents. Music Works grants tuition assistance to dozens of students each year who would not otherwise be able to afford private instruction. Music Works' music therapy program serves people living with disabilities and addresses mental health challenges, using music to address non-musical goals. Public school music students benefit from free hands-on music instruction as part of the Music Works Outreach Program. Access is also increased via educational videos and concerts posted on Music Works' YouTube Channel. In these challenging times, people turn to music and art for healing and harmony. Help Music Works continue its mission, to change lives through increased access to music education and experiences.
