SHM offers group classes and private lessons in string instruments, percussion and voice. The Scholarship Fund gives all students the opportunity to connect with music while gaining self-confidence and forming a new avenue for self expression. The group class setting connects them to like-minded peers and creates a strong community of music learners.

Scholarship recipients are able to receive scholarships for as long as they meet the income requirements. The goal is to create lasting relationships with these students and see them succeed as both musicians and well-rounded individuals.
