New Music Makers - Matching Grant Program

Korg Education continues to be a catalyst in music education and is helping encourage elementary and middle schools to get more music back in the classroom. With our matching grant program, New Music Makers, teachers and administrators will be given the opportunity to acquire all the instruments they need to kick-start a general music program for a fraction of the retail cost. The ability to procure such a robust collection of instruments will ensure the sustainability of a long-term music instruction program for years to come for any school.

The New Music Makers Matching Grant Program is specifically targeted for elementary and middle schools that either once had a music program and had to cut it due to limited budgets, or has never had a program and wants to start one. We understand that the idea of starting a music program from scratch is daunting and feels very expensive and at times intimidating. The goal of the New Music Makers Matching Grant Program is to help provide a turn-key solution for any school.

This is a matching grant opportunity requiring only $1,000 from the school for a collection of instruments valued at over $2,000, and is perfect for smaller school budgets and even parent organizations. The grant process is a simple online form submission, so if your school, or a school you know of is looking to build New Music Makers, click below and share your story with us.



Texas Music Plates - Support Music in Texas Schools!​  

The Texas Music Office License Plate Grant Program seeks to provide opportunities for the next generation of Texas musicians and to provide support for music programming in under-served and under-resourced communities. $22 from the $30 fee from the purchase of every Texas music specialty license plate goes directly toward providing music instruments and lessons to Texas school children in need around the state. In addition, this fund is able to partner with non-profit organizations to create experiences featuring Texas music in under-served communities statewide.

The License Plate Grant fund accepts donations, working hand-in-hand with Texas 501(c)3 non-profits to foster the development of young musicians throughout the state so they can continue the development of their craft, regardless of financial challenges.
