We are asking individuals and businesses to consider donating to the Rising Star Scholarship fund. Every dollar will go directly to students in need so that they can participate. Just click on the donate button below and indicate "scholarship" in the notes. Or you can mail us a check to:

The Music is Art Rising Star Scholarship is a direct sponsorship from foundations, businesses and individuals who are interested in the music education of our youth. Funds may be used for programs that we sponsor or endorse. Funds are limited and therefore discretion must be used in the selection of candidates for these funds.

"Thank you for providing the larger part of my tuition for Rock Camp. In this camp I was able to thoroughly expand my musical perspective as well as form invaluable relationships with fellow musicians. The experience I've had will carry with me through my life." - Tom A.

"I cannot express a greater amount of gratitude to you and this camp as a whole. I was constantly learning some fact that was otherwise foreign to me and gaining experience as a musician. I had never really taken the time to think of all the jobs available in the music industry before now. One of the greatest aspects of this camp was the people; the teachers were very nice and helpful, and it was great to interact with other musicians in my age group. Us musicians are a rare breed, and it is great that there are organizations like yours to help aid in this preservation. I could not express more gratitude...for you have given me the necessary aid to participate in such a program, it has truly been an honor to attend." - Mason M.
