Welcome to Seattle Music Partners

We at Seattle Music Partners believe that music is a powerful tool for inspiring and empowering young people.

Because music-learning opportunities are often limited or inaccessible, SMP provides a free after-school music program for students in low-income schools in Seattle’s Central District. We also provide a unique opportunity for skilled musicians to give back.

We recruit, train and support skilled high school, college-aged and community musicians as volunteer music tutors and mentors who lead one-on-one music lessons each week. These lessons are supplemented with a second afternoon of group instruction and ensemble work. We also provide instruments to participants and transportation where needed.

Our Annual Campaign is underway. Music changes lives—and so can you—by making a donation today!
