About Us

Music Education for Everyone is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance music education through performance, learning, and community.

Founded in 2023, we are a new organization that is contributing to the San Francisco's music community.


Learning in a Choir

Our community choir has performed in a series of concerts and events including most recently Storek, Old Mint, and Calvary Presbyterian Chapel. We sing in a variety of musical styles, both a cappella and accompanied. We rehearse weekly on Monday evenings from 6:00-8:00 pm, and offer a social opportunity directly after most rehearsals. Our choir offers three sessions and performs three concerts a year.


Music is sung in four or eight parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). No prior experience of singing is needed - just a desire to be part of a friendly community of singers. This adult choir is always welcoming to new members.

Join our Class

Our introductory class has the goal to deepen everyone's understanding of music. The class introduces you to music notation, sight reading, some music theory and vocal technique. This class is only currently open to choir members and is a good way to sharpen your music skills and gain confidence. It is offered on Mondays from 5:00-6:00, directly before choir rehearsal.
