Atitlan Music School is a charitable organization under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax code.

We reach out to the community to recruit students and provide scholarship opportunities to study with qualified music professionals. We provide technical and “ear” training in individual, private lessons on a variety of instruments including piano, drums, percussion, violin, guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, flute, saxophone and voice. We have a practice facility and we supply instruments to many of our students.

In the course of our five years of operation we have provided 7000 individual private lessons. In addition, each week we conduct at least two ensemble sessions for our more advanced students. We prepare them for recitals and other performance opportunities. Our students come from our complex community that includes indigenous Maya, Ladino and foreign expats. Their ages range from five to eighty-one years.

We are dedicated to enhancing lives through music and to providing a livable wage to our instructors who are professional musicians.

ANGEL PAGE:

In our efforts to reach more of the poor indigenous and ladino population we have set a goal of increasing enrollmentto 2000 classes per year. Organizations and individuals who help us with this specific goal by sponsoring students are listed below:

It costs about $420 per year for a student tohave one private class per week. Supervised practice time and ensemble sessions are free.
