Our Annual Fund This crucial fund helps support our day-to-day operations, program support, and general administrative costs. These expenses are not covered through tuition revenue, and your gift is an important contribution toward our success.
The Scholarship Fund Despite DSM's efforts to keep tuition lower than comparable music schools in the Boston area, music lessons are still unaffordable for some in our community. Each year, we assist approximately 10% of our student population with financial aid awards and/or instrument loans. With your generous support, we can continue to offer these valuable services.
Other ways to donate
Instrument Donations The music school accepts donations of instruments in reasonable working condition. We will restore and refurbish instruments, then lend them to students who can’t afford to rent them. We might be able to accept larger instruments such as pianos, depending on size, conditions, and space availability. Please contact us if you are interested in donating your instrument.
Program Support/Sponsorship We have different opportunities to support our various programs. Please contact Amy Fichera for further information.
