Northwest Music Mentors creates partnerships between music educators and professional musicians, providing students with focused instruction in group settings.
The Mentorship Difference
Many music students do not have access to after school programs or private lessons. In our programs, mentors work with students in break-out sectionals during classroom hours. Mentors focus on material designated by their music director, further developing their musicianship by helping students improve their skills and increase their level of participation and overall enjoyment of performing music.
Our programs match mentors with students on the same instrument or family of instruments. Each mentor works with students when they first begin to play or join an ensemble, and continues to work with them as they move to the next level of their education — middle school or junior high, then to high school, through the end of secondary education — providing additional instruction and guidance during each step of their journey as a musician, and helping to answer the question “What’s next?”
