Major Chords for Minors relies solely on donations and grants. Each and every donation helps us achieve our goal to build better children through music. In 2015 we provided private lessons on piano, guitar, and drums to over 230 students.


It takes people, time, and dedication to ensure our children are receiving the best music education. There are many unique opportunities for volunteers to become a part of Major Chords for Minors and continute to help build a better community. We greatly appreciate all volunteers and support. Email, call, or stop by the studio for more information about volunteer opportunities.
