The Cowan Community Center gratefully accepts donations that support the work we do:
The Cowan Creek Mountain Music School Scholarship Fund provides full scholarships for all youth up to age 22 and adults with need, and memorial scholarships which recognize outstanding student achievement. Through scholarships, we seek to assure that any Kentucky child who wants to learn mountain music will get that opportunity, regardless of family income. To date, the school has provided over 750 scholarships.
During the school year, the Cowan Community Center also offers the Mountain Music & More afterschool program with instruction in mountain dulcimer, guitar, banjo and singing free to students from 1st grade through teens.
The Teaching Assistant Program provides the opportunity for young people to begin learning to teach old time music by assisting an experienced faculty member during the week of the music school. It is our hope that this will expand the availability of confident and skilled old time music teachers across the state.
And still more ways you can invest in Eastern Kentucky’s youth!:
In addition to the Cowan Creek Mountain Music School, the Cowan Community Center will offer several more Kids on the Creek Day Camps in 2024. The day camps feature music, art, science and field trips for mountain kids and are free for all children. They provide hands-on educational enrichment as well as summer fun. Your donation can help to provide more kids this opportunity.
