Kiwanis Music Education Fund

The Kiwanis Music Education Fund is a new initiative of the KW Kiwanis Music Festival with the goal of ensuring that students who may not be able to afford music lessons have the opportunity to study with a qualified and experienced teacher in our community.  We have been fundraising over the past year, and are now accepting applications to start lessons in the fall of 2024!


Are you, or your child, a student who loves learning music, and wants to reach that next goal in your journey but can't afford to pay for private lessons?  Are you a teacher who sees potential in a student, but are aware they may not have the financial resources to move forward or purchase an instrument?  If so Email Us for more information or apply today.

How can you help a child in need on their musical journey?
