Start a Chapter

Are you inspired by MMC’s mission? Do you want to start a chapter at your school/university? Leading a group of like minded university students and/or serving as a University Volunteer Instructor enhances the lives of young people in your community. Starting your own MMC chapter comes with a support circle of staff and peers, guidance and outlines for operational processes, and training for leaders and teachers. We help you put all of the puzzle pieces together to ensure the work of supporting music education in your community can happen quickly and efficiently.

Current Chapters:
Boston University
Columbia University
New York University
Queens College

If you are interested in learning more about the process of starting an MMC University Chapter, please contact our University Chapter Coordinator, Camellia Aftahi, with questions. We love to meet passionate university students who align with our mission to expand youths’ experiences and opportunities through music. We hope to have a University Chapter at every higher education institution across the United States one day!
We are currently looking to start University Chapters at the following schools. All we need is student leadership to get things up and running!
