At SCM, we believe in the future potential of music students
and seek to grow the local marimba community
by providing professional support to marimba students and artists.

WHY YOUR HELP IS IMPORTANT


As a young nonprofit organization, we rely entirely on voluntary efforts to make our competition, educational programs, and concerts happen.

We are young professionals working voluntarily outside our full-time jobs to meet, inspire, and support over 500 students and young artists through our programs for the past five years.

Since all of our events are free for students, we do not make any profits from them. That is why we need YOUR help to continue helping marimba students and young artists stride forward in their musical journey!

HOW YOU CAN HELP
