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.

Would you like to volunteer with SMP?  Check out our schedule and apply now!
