Thank you for your support in 2022.


With your help, we raised over $19,000 in our final campaign of 2022, exceeding our end-of-year fundraising goal of $15,000! Thank you for your support.



Our community is truly remarkable. Today we proved our belief that “music is a language that speaks to our hearts and minds.” Yesterday we surpassed our end-of-year goal of $10,000!!! Thank you and bravo to all who made it happen, you know who you are.
But we still have 9 days to go and together we can raise even more:
*More funding for scholarships
*More funding for instruments 
*More funding to maintain our historic and unique location in the mountains. 
So, let’s keep the momentum alive.
Our new goal is $15,000.
Help us AMPLIFY our mission even further by gifting MORE young musicians-in-need the chance to access high-quality music education in the mountains!
Together we can soar to even greater heights.

Investing in Our Historic Campus

Rocky Ridge Music’s 19-acre mountain facility includes dozens of venerable structures—from humble practice rooms to the historic Hewes-Kirkwood Inn–that are continually in need of maintenance and restoration. At the same time, we are pursuing an ambitious program of upgrades intended to meet current and future needs while preserving our rustic roots. This includes both new structures—such as a performance hall, a recording studio, and additional student housing—and infrastructure improvements such as water and waste treatment systems.

These investments in the future of Rocky Ridge depend on the generosity of our community, and provide opportunities for our most committed supporters to leave a lasting mark on the campus. Major donations for capital improvements can be acknowledged in a range of ways, from donor recognition plaques to named structures.
