Musical Empowerment (ME) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Chapel Hill, NC. ME’s foundational programs are the Music Mentorship Program (MMP) and the Instrument Lending Program (ILP). At the beginning of the school year, social workers in public elementary and middle schools refer students in need to the MMP. These students are then paired with collegiate mentors who volunteer to teach them a 40-minute music lesson per week throughout the school year. Students can continue taking lessons in the program through high school. Pairings are made based on time availability, language spoken, and musical ability. In Chapel Hill, the founding chapter, lessons are held in a local church. All students perform in a recital at the end of each semester to showcase what they have learned.
