The Gift of Music (West Jersey Music Academy)

Give the Gift of Music
The West Jersey Music Academy  was founded in 2017 to provide high-quality, affordable music lessons to students in South Jersey. We are a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization located in Moorestown, New Jersey. Our mission is to not only provide excellence in music instruction to a diverse group of learners, but also create a partnership with our students that is creative, nurturing, and consistent. Our school serves people of all ages: children, adults, seniors, and students with special needs. Students enjoy lessons in piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, guitar, ukulele, flute, and drums.
Like many others, COVID has presented many challenges to individualized music instruction. Knowing that consistency is vitally important for a student to continue to grow, we successfully transitioned our lessons to a virtual platform. We realized early on that for many of our student’s, music, whether it is listening, practicing, or sharing; gives them a sense of purpose and peace in an ever changing and unsettling world. Thus, our top priority is to keep music lessons going, and adapt in any way we can to make our lessons successful. It is our goal to develop, nurture, and expand our programs, so that we can continue to provide this service to anyone.
This holiday season, we are asking patrons to Give the Gift of Musicby donating to our school. Our goal is to raise $2500.00 over the next ten weeks, and this will allow the School to:
-      Purchase additional instruments (violins, roll-up keyboards,     ukuleles, guitars)
-      Expand Professional Development (online instructional support for students with and without special needs)
-      Issue Scholarship Funding for those in need
-      Develop New Programing, Partnerships, and Outreach
We are so grateful for your monetary donation. Any amount you can give would provide some type of support for our students. As incentive, for the first person(s) to donate $75, $125, $150, and $250, we will happily send you a token of our appreciation.
We take enormous pride in our instruction and are committed to provide music education to anyone who appreciates music and is dedicated to learning. Please consider supporting our drive and sharing the Gift of Music.
