JOMP was a huge part of my childhood, and I cannot say enough good things about them. They offer an incredible music program, and what really sets them apart is their focus on collaboration and individual growth as a musician, rather than competition between students. Their financial aid program makes them accessible to students from all backgrounds, and at all levels of musicianship (not just child prodigies and superstars -- if a kid needs financial aid for her first recorder class, she can get it). When I was a student, I benefited from their financial aid program, and in their last year, they gave out over $110,000 in financial aid. I am so glad to be able to support this amazing organization.

It is a wonderful, well-run organization. The teachers and staff are dedicated to both music and the musical development of their students. Regardless of a student's ability, JOMP encourages participation and personal growth. Our three children participated across various instruments (drums, piano and violin) and at differnet levels between 1996 and 2008. We continue to give to JOMP each year because of the benefits that our children received and the valuable role it plays in the greater Worcester community.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

observing weekly over a number of years the involvement and committment of the teachers and staff with the students while waiting for our children to complete their lessons or ensemble practice.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

energetic and dedicated. Everyone there shares a love for music.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand it's reach into the community by bringing programs and teachers into the neighborhood.

Ways to make it better...

the chairs in the waiting area could have been more comfortable.

Having been involved with the Joy of Music Program (JOMP) since the early '90s, first as a parent, then as a board member, and as a continuous donor for nearly fifteen years, I have a long view of this community music school. What I have seen is consistent clarity of mission: dedication to the well being of every student and tireless (almost selfless) advocacy for the belief that all young people, irrespective of means, deserve the opportunity to experience the joy of art. JOMP serves as a role model for all non-profit organizations in the central Massachusetts area (and beyond): it's success will likely enhance the success of many younger (local) non-profits. While I no longer live in in central Massachusetts, I intend to follow JOMP's growth as well as to support it's mission.
