*Students who already own/play another instrument are also encouraged to apply
Feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com with any questions.
Step 1: Submit your application here.
Step 2: Within a few days, our program staff will reach out to you to let you know if your child has been provisionally accepted. If they are, you will be asked to fill out our online registration form and our Application for Financial Aid (which must be printed and then mailed or hand-delivered).
Step 3: Once program staff have reviewed your additional documents, you will be notified of your child's acceptance to the program. If accepted, you will be scheduled for an orientation session and connected with an LMP private teacher to schedule your child's lessons.
Schedule is tentative and subject to change.
In September of 2017, the UD Little Masters Project (LMP), presented by the UD Master Players Concert Series (Master Players), was launched to provide free private music lessons, music theory classes and instruments to children of low-income households in Delaware and the nearby tri-state communities. The mission of LMP is to provide music education and opportunities to students in need because we believe that experiencing live music is essential for children of all backgrounds.
The first school to benefit from this program was Bayard Middle School in Wilmington, DE, and the project has been a resounding success. On Dec. 9, 2017, just three months after launching the project, four students from Bayard Middle School walked onstage at the Master Players' Holiday Pops concert at the University of Delaware to show what they learned in front of an audience of almost 600 people. The students collaborated with their teachers for a performance of a Hanukkah medley that was met with uproarious applause. These students were the first participants; then, LMP opened its doors to the public.
Now in its fourth year, the Little Masters Project is now collaborating with the UD Community Music School (CMS) to provide free music theory and private music lessons. Participating students will be given instruments to keep and will receive free music lessons from the talented instructors during after-school hours at the University of Delaware's campus or online. LMP will continue to inspire the students by providing them with thrilling performance opportunities to share the stage with professional musicians.
During these uncertain times, music has been a constant. The presence of music can bring such joy and creativity to a young mind. Music can also be a great escape from some troublesome realities. For the under-served communities that the Little Masters Project targets, music is more important now than ever.
The Little Masters Project is made possible, in part, by the generosity of dedicated friends who value the arts in our community. The following list recognizes contributions received from June 15, 2021 to April 15, 2022.

In order to continue our program and bring the gift of music to additional students, we are launching a new crowdfunding program through the University of Delaware and we need your help.
We are also accepting donations of new or gently used instruments and online learning gear (iPads, headphones, webcams, interfaces, USB mics, etc.) for the students; contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for delivery. All donations are tax-deductible, and the more we raise, the more kids we can help.
For more information about how to support LMP, contact us at email@example.com.
