Why Gifted Music School?

Gifted Music School is a vibrant institution committed to creating a pathway to success for all children. This directly impacts the standard of living in our state and country. One child at a time, we are building a brighter future. With tuition-free programs like our Conservatory and GRIT programs, we are indebted to countless donors who believe in sustaining outstanding music education. We currently serve 566 students in Utah, providing over 700 lessons and classes per month, 70 concerts annually, and outreach events that touch thousands of people. Our world-class faculty consists of nationally recognized pedagogues. Many students are children who would not have access to the level of education and opportunities provided by the school.

This is only possible by support from forward-thinking individuals, corporations, and foundations. Simply said, we would not exist with your support.

Please consider joining the ranks of leaders and citizens by becoming a part of our vision. Click on the link at the top of this page to make your gift online, or call, or visit our campus to learn more.

Please become a part of our family.
