It's Easy to Join

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).
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 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.
Did you know that there are over 59 Bands, Orchestras and Choral groups at Lakewood City Schools?
