Providing Access to Music:
Each year, the Museum of Making Music provides access to music and music making through a variety of educational outreach programs that impact thousands of adults, seniors, students, and children.
These efforts include the museum's Title One Fieldtrip Program, an annual venture that provides free access to the museum for low-income students from Carlsbad and the neighboring communities of Vista, Oceanside, San Marcos, and Escondido; the Joli Ann Leichtag Elementary School Partnership—providing 30 minutes of weekly in-school hands-on music classes for over 800 low-income and at-risk students; and a scholarship program that enables fixed-income adults and seniors the opportunity to learn a musical instrument in the North Coastal New Horizons Band or North Coast Strings orchestra.
The Museum of Making Music's gala event will help offset the $60,000 annual cost of operating these programs with support coming from silent and live auction items. A wide range of local businesses, individuals, and companies have pledged their contribution through the donation of auction-friendly items such as: a timeshare in Maui, a cabin at Lake Arrowhead, an assortment of instruments, behind the scenes tours of Pixar Studios, professional chef-hosted private parties, hotel vacation packages, and sport event tickets.
