The NEMPAC Music Scholarship Fund provides need-based tuition assistance to students from North End, Charlestown, and surrounding neighborhoods of the City of Boston. Scholarships are allocated based on need and awarded by an anonymous committee who thoroughly reviews all applications. Students are given awards to pursue artistic studies in private music lessons, summer programs, or an after-school program of their choosing.

NEMPAC strives to reach families regardless of financial status through free or low-cost private lessons and class programs. An August 2019 study determined that NEMPAC’s private instruction rates are 30% lower, on average, than comparable music schools in surrounding areas. This year, due to the success of the 2019 Perform-a-thon and support from sponsors, NEMPAC’s goal is to raise $18,000.

All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the NEMPAC Scholarship Fund and the continuation of lower tuition costs for educational programs.
