Since 1991, The Academy’s mission has been to provide high-quality music instruction to Hampton Roads residents who seek it, regardless of their ability to pay. To that end, The Academy is committed to ensuring access to music education through the provision of need-based scholarships and numerous community outreach programs. The results of these efforts are measured in many ways, including better grades in all subjects for those who are taking examinations. All this would not be possible without the generous support of our benefactors. We thank you for being part of this diverse and caring group.

We gratefully accept your generous support in a number of ways.

You may make a one-time contribution directly to the Academy.

We also proudly participate in the Combined Federal Campaigns (CFC) of both the United Way of South Hampton Roads and the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula.  The Academy also is included in the United Way of South Hampton Roads’ Combined Charities Campaign (CCC).  If you’d like to make your gift to The Academy through one of these campaigns, please use the agency code 79161.

We also have an endowment fund at The Hampton Road Community Foundation.
