At the heart of JOMP’s mission “to enrich lives and foster community through accessible music education and performance” is our extraordinary Financial Aid Program, which makes it possible for students in need of assistance to study with our outstanding faculty ~ 32% of our students receive partial to full financial aid.


Over $1.6 million in Financial Aid has been awarded to over 1,000 students since our inception. Students whose families could not afford to pay for lessons and classes are now making music as adults, some are music teachers and professional classical, jazz, pop and orchestral musicians. $140,780 in financial aid was awarded in FY2016. The goal for FY2017 is $147,000.
