Play an Instrumental Role in the Future of Music Education

Kaufman Music Center educates young people in music so they can become innovative thinkers, engaged citizens, and dynamic leaders who make the world a better place. Each year, we help more than 4,000 young musicians discover a lifelong love of music.

  • Receive a Scholarship for music, dance, or theater studies at Lucy Moses School, New York City's largest community arts school;
  • Perform Works by Living Composers as part of Face the Music, an innovative youth new music ensemble; and
