Each year, hundreds of students of all ages and abilities count on AMS for affordable, high quality private music lessons, ensembles, workshops and summer camps. Approximately 40-50 music educators and teaching artists count on AMS for an affordable place to teach. Your generous donations help keep our teachers in business, and help our students thrive in the Western NC music community. Learn about Asheville Music School’s impact since 2014.
Through the Paul Thorpe Music Education Fund, scores of families who cannot afford music lessons for their children receive scholarships, and our Sound Education Outreach program helps the joy and healing power of music to thousands of the less fortunate in our community.

Demand for these programs is rising. Many more families apply for scholarships each year than we have funds to award. We now have seven outreach ensembles, music equipment to maintain, a constant need for music supplies. Our Sound Education Outreach ensembles are more in demand than ever, and we want to continue to provide meaningful performance opportunities for our students.
We need your support to help us keep tuition affordable and sustain our growing programs. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
