Youth Music Project

OCT Qualified


To provide outstanding rock, pop, and country music education for youth by offering tuition assistance, instrument rentals, and exceptional, state-of-the-art performance opportunities.

Bottom Line for Portland

Music is a huge part of what makes us who we are, as individuals and a community. At Youth Music Project we know that the gift of music in a child’s life can become the soundtrack they need to power through tough times and celebrate their milestones. That’s why we provide state-of-the-art music education programs free to hundreds of students each year who qualify for free or reduced lunch in schools - because music creates resilience, understanding, curiosity, confidence and so much more.


“Being a part of Youth Music Project has given our family a chance to belong in the community, connect with other musicians and their families, and participate in many wonderful musical events. Youth Music Project has become a second home.” - YMP Grown-Up

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Youth Music Project celebrates the chorus of perspectives, experiences, and unique essence of each person. A soloist is beautiful on its own, but a band, choir, or ensemble has vibrancy and energy made more beautiful with unique instruments and voices included together in co-creation. Modeled by our YMP board, staff and leadership, YMP uses the study of music to empower students to appreciate and respect differences, encourage critical thinking, listen deeply, and make space for and include all voices and perspectives regardless of: ethnicity, race, culture, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, class, nationality, ability or age.
