We'd love to add your name to the over 100 members helping to support the Lakewood City Schools' outstanding music program. You may join at any time and all members in good standing will be listed in the concert programs. And, remember, by joining Music Boosters your student will be eligible for many LMB sponsored scholarships (see scholarship information below).
What We Do....
Last year Lakewood Music Boosters distributed over $27,000 directly towards your children's music enrichment through Lakewood Schools' Music Departments. Including over $7,000 in music scholarships for lessons and camps.
This amazing funding was possible only with your help. By joining Music Boosters and helping with our fundraising and volunteering opportunities we will again be able to support your students in the 2013-14 school year. Please join our organization and help when you can by purchasing 50/50 raffle tickets, concessions and participating in fundraising efforts. Volunteer to help with ticketing at the Civic during concerts! It's fun and a great way to get to know the community.

Ulah Gilmore Scholarship
The Ulah Gilmore Scholarship is available to any student K-11 wishing to attend a summer camp or take summer private lessons. The student must apply with the approval of his/her music teacher. Priority consideration is given to students whose families have been active members of Lakewood Music Boosters and whose membership is secured BY MARCH 31, 2014. Applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee in May. Any student wishing to apply must obtain an application from his/her music teacher before April. The application deadline April 25, 2014. A downloadable application is available here.
B. Neil Davis Scholarship
The B. Neil Davis Scholarship is available for the purpose of aid for music lessons or other studies deemed appropriate by the recommending music teacher. Scholarships will aid these activities during the academic year, not in the summer. Teacher recommendation and student financial need will be the driving criteria for this scholarship. A student may only receive this award ONCE during his/her tenure in the Lakewood City Schools. There is no application form available online, as this scholarship must be recommended to the students by their music teacher only.
Donations to either fund are greatly appreciated. Please send donations to: Lakewood Music Boosters, PO Box 770782, Lakewood, OH 44107.
