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.


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

We are young professionals working voluntarily outside our full-time jobs to meet, inspire, and support hundreds of students and young artists through our programs for the past 8 years.

As our concert admissions are free for students, we need YOUR help to continue helping marimba students and young artists move forward in their musical journey!




SCM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. Every bit of help goes a long way to support our competition, educational programs, and concerts. We have a team of voluntary staff and we do not profit from our events, so you can be assured that your donations are always used for the right cause.

Our Federal Tax ID or Employer Identification Number (EIN) is 82-1867483.


As a nonprofit, the fabric of our organization is made of our amazing volunteers. Whether it’s music performance, marketing, finance, education, or event planning, we love finding a place for people who are passionate about what we do.
