How To Help

MECCFMountain Music School relies on the support of our friends to assist with the purchase of instruments and tuition scholarships for students. Several Mountain Music School alumni, who had their first exposure to old-time music at the school, have gone on to pursue careers in music, or become involved in traditional old-time bands. Your support of this integral program is needed and appreciated.
