Music Center of the Northwest

MISSION: Music Center of the Northwest is a non-profit community music school located in North Seattle. We believe in the transformative power of music in the lives of people and our community. With a commitment to music education and live performance, Music Center provides access to exceptional musical experiences for people of all ages and abilities.


  • Annual Gala: The annual gala and auction is Music Center's biggest fundraiser of the year. Many volunteers are needed at this event to help with check-in and directing guests, assisting with pre-dinner activities, set-up and tear-down, and picking up items and supplies before the event.
  • Instrument "Petting Zoos": Music Center hosts many Petting Zoos in cooperation with other arts organizations. Volunteers are needed to help kids see, hear, and try out instruments.
  • Marketing/Promotion: New concerts and classes are happening at Music Center all the time. Volunteers can help get the word out by distributing marketing materials to specified neighborhoods and locations.
  • Administrative: To keep the office running, Music Center utilizes volunteers for occasional administrative duties, such as envelope-stuffing for mass mailings.
