Program Mission

North Coast Music Mentors believes that every child should be given the opportunity to explore music as a means of self-discovery and self-expression. The primary goal of NCMM is to provide free, quality music instruction to local children, grades K-12, who show a financial need and desire to learn. We have offered both private lessons and group lessons, in the hopes that we will be able to serve families that cannot afford private music instruction, as well as schools that cannot afford music programs. We also want to provide our Music Mentors with the resources and opportunities to share their musical knowledge and passion for music with children.

Service, Goals & Projects

North Coast Music Mentors currently works with elementary aged children at Arcata Elementary School. Service involves providing group lessons to children who are eager to learn more about all aspects of music.

Upcoming Events or Activities

NCMM program is always looking to acquire instruments that community members may no longer use or need so these instruments could be passed on to the children hoping to acquire their own instruments. Anyone who could contribute to this worthy cause is asked to phone the Y.E.S. House with information about their donation.
