Support ACMS & The Harmony Initiative

Our contribution to the Austin community is made possible by the generous support of people like you. As the central Texas region’s first and largest community music school, ACMS strives to provide lifelong access to the musical arts through high level instruction and performances for all, regardless of age, skill, ethnicity, or income. Your investment helps us not only continue our community focus through our Harmony Initiative, but also to keep our doors open so that we may continue to house skilled musicians, teachers, and administrators who are the fabric of the Austin music community.
