our mission

Foundation Music School is a non-profit community school of the arts committed to providing high quality opportunities in the arts to interested individuals of all ages, abilities and incomes.

Established in 2006, Foundation Music School reaches approximately 600 students in-house each week and of those students nearly 20% receive full or partial scholarships.  We reach another 1,000 individuals each week through our outreach programs, which include our Poudre School District Early Childhood Music Therapy Program, Preschool Music Programs, Wings Easter Seals Program and our Teen Mom and Baby class.

Foundation Music School is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
