Joy Of Music School Free children lessons in Knoxville, TN

Rated Excellent
Rated Excellent from 1 review
We are a nonprofit organization providing free music lessons for children who cannot afford them. All teachers are volunteers. We provide instruments, music and supplies at no cost to students. We endeavor to broaden the lives of financially disadvantaged young people, to teach good habits that will carry over into their lives work, and to expose young people to new opportunities for success.

Volunteers give one to three hours per week teaching disadvantaged and/or at-risk kids in piano, drums, guitar, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, violin, voice, flute and more. Teachers receive support in pedagogy, library access, and internet based teaching resources. Training is given to volunteer teachers in the area of individual mentoring as well, so that the relationships formed are significant and enduring, and transcend the music.

Andrew Skoog
Andrew Skoog, an associate professor of voice at the University of Tennessee, started volunteering as an instructor at the Joy of Music School in early 2006. Some of his UT colleagues teach at the School and were enthusiastic about it. Even still, Andrew’s experience has far surpassed his expectations. “It’s just been unbelievably fulfilling,” he says. It’s just … pick any positive adjective. The Joy of Music School is such a treasure for Knoxville.”

  Great mission and impressive kids that are full of talent.

This is such a unique place not just for Knoxville, but for the entire country. A perfect example of what the arts can do in a community and how kids can blossom when their creativity is supported and nurtured.

This really is a great model of something that we need to have in communities across the country. As our public schools fail and drop programs that encourage music and the arts these are the types of non-profits that will need to step in and fill the role.
