Saint Paul Conservatory of Music

Help us make high quality music education available to everyone in our community.

At Saint Paul Conservatory of Music, we do more than teaching music—we create community through the universal language of music. Besides a comprehensive, diverse, and impressive offering of private music lessons and ensembles for self-financing students, the Conservatory has developed a community outreach program called Music for All. Music for All is the embodiment of our commitment to level the playing field for people who would not otherwise have access to music lessons and performing arts opportunities.

What is the SPCM’s Music for All Program?

  • Music lessons for nearly 300 children, K-8, in low-income Saint Paul public schools. Without Music for All, these students would not experience the unique joy and discipline that musical study offers.
  • Financial aid for high need, high potential students.  One recipient won second place in the American Protégé International Piano Competition, which brought him to perform solo in Carnegie Hall. 
  • Free concerts for the ill and elderly, performed by our faculty.  These performances bring joy to the shut-in at nursing homes and hope to patients and their families at hospitals.
  • Our locally renowned Coffee Concert series, which provides an intellectual and emotional oasis to so many of us whose daily lives are rushed and harried.

And how does it all happen?

That is where you enter the picture. SPCM is able to offer scholarships because of your support.  It is able to present a moment of inspiration or comfort to the ill, injured and elderly because of your generosity.  It is able to provide the instruction that makes not just for budding performers but all-around better students because of what you do for the SPCM.

So, for the sake of unlikely yet appreciative audiences and unlikely yet enthusiastic students, we ask you to give today as generously as you can.
