Music for Life!

What is Music for Life?

The Music for Life! Campaign is re-shaping Pakachoag for students, today and tomorrow by:

  • Enhancing program delivery with geographic options, community outreach and local partnerships;
  • Increasing the percent of students receiving financial aid; and
  • Aligning our improved resources and capabilities to better deliver on our core promise, while positioning ourselves for sustainability

–all to benefit our students of the future and create greater community impact.

The Music for Life Campaign will reach deeper into the community through:

  • Extended outreach for at-risk children and families in Main South, Worcester;
  • Dynamic local partnerships and alliances; and
  • Increases in financial aid to 10% of total enrollees who qualify (25% of private lesson enrollment).

We’re excited to have this opportunity to deepen our collective commitment to helping young people make music for life.  Read about or goals and support for the Music for Life! campaign in our Fall/Winter Newsletter.
