About Us

Mission

Our mission is to share the joy of playing music by developing in our students the skills, confidence and ability to play music in a performing band. Each band is led by a talented professional musician who creates a safe, collaborative, inspiring and fun learning environment, matching students by skill level and age to the appropriate band.

The Stillwater Story

Stillwater Music (formerly known as the Stillwater Foundation) was created in 2005 to provide educational opportunities for youth and adults, including the disabled and disadvantaged, to participate in quality instruction in the arts in a safe and positive environment. Instructors for Stillwater programs are, like the founder of Stillwater, intrinsically interested in providing the best possible opportunities for area youth and adults in their area of expertise.

Stillwater students are encouraged to explore and expand their limitations both creatively and physically. We feel strongly that keeping kids engaged in music helps to build character, teamwork and self confidence. Stillwater Music admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, and ability to all the rights privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the organization.
