Seattle Music Teachers Fund

My name is Nate Omdal. I am a musician living in Seattle, Wa.

I am raising funds for musicians living and working in the Seattle area who have lost income due to the Coronavirus. Many of these folks are friends and colleagues of mine and I am hoping to help. This fund is meant to help with income lost due to cancelled lessons and other non-performance music work.

The funds raised will be distributed as gifts of $250. A small steering committee has been assembled to help with the application process.

Once funds have been raised, we will be transferring the funds electronically.

If you are a musician living and working in Seattle, the odds are you make 30%-50% of your income teaching lessons. As our state grapples with cancellations and lost work from the Covid-19 Coronavirus, these workers will be hit especially hard. Often the length of our shifts fall short of state requirements for state income programs like disability or worker’s compensation.

If you would like to apply, please fill out the Google Forms application, and we will begin to pass out funds as quickly as we are able.
