Meadowlark Music Program

Group Music Lessons

Meadowlark Music Program logo

The Meadowlark Music Program (MMP) provides free group lessons and instruments for grades K – 5. MMP allows low-income families to give their children the advantage of learning a musical instrument that they otherwise would not have access to. Students who are eligible for their school’s free and reduced lunch program qualify for MMP. Students can learn the guitar, the violin, or the piano.

Meadowlark Music Program classes are held September through May at our collaborative partner sites*:

  • The Matthews House

  • The Boys and Girls Club Fort Collins

  • The Boys and Girls Club Loveland-Pulliam

  • The Academy of Arts and Knowledge (Fort Collins)

*Students must be enrolled at one of these sites to register for the Meadowlark Music Program. A limited number of private (one-on-one or small groups of 2 to 3) lessons for any instrument are also available for those not involved at one of our partner sites. Please contact Jephta Bernstein, Executive Director, for more information: [email protected]
