Sound Studios Olympia is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

TIN: 83-2858437 


Sound Studios Olympia is a nonprofit organization and because of this, we rely on the generous donations from our community, local and beyond. Your donations paved the way for our launch and now they will help keep us going. COVID-19 has, unfortunately, cause microbusinesses like private music instruction to stumble and close. We need to be here after COVID ends to provide a place for teachers to regain their footing. With a small donation from a lot of people, we will be here for them to land. Thank You.

Your donations here will help us:

-Cover costs associated with moving in and maintaining our building

-Keep pianos in working condition and tuned

-Pay for necessities like high speed internet, which is a must during COVID as many teachers will need to be able to have virtual lessons at the same time

-Pay a supporting staff

-Continue to acquire necessary equipment to run our studios like desks, toner cartridges, and paper

When we are able to confidently cover most of these costs through continued support from our community we will be able to turn to the other aspects of our vision, like raising money to help pay for lessons for students who might not otherwise be able to afford them. This fund will be created and people will be able to donate specifically to it, which will earmark that contribution. Once a threshold is met we will begin taking applications from our community and get them paired with the best teacher for them. 

Please consider becoming a sustaining donor in September as this level of contribution is going to be our most consistent and reliable. You will be helping us establish what will be a long tradition in Olympia, giving everyone the chance to share their music.

Founding Donors are those people who took an early interest in supporting us and our mission. Their support is incredibly important and without it we would not be able to have gotten as far as we have. You can become a Founding Donor today by donating at least $400. All Founding Donors will have their name written on a plaque which will be hung on the wall in the school for the life of the school.

Sustaining Donors are ones who donate $15-$25 (T3), $30-$50 (T2), or $70-$100 (T1) per month for a period of 1 year, from Sep. through Aug. of the following year. This program renews each September. Following the end of the cycle there is a grand banquet for T1 and T2 sustaining donors. We will have merchandise giveaways throughout the year, like shirts, mugs, and keychains for all T1-3. Every donation helps.

You may join this program without signing up below, just email for how to sign up and contribute by cash or check. 


A special thank you to Maté Hollos with Splango ( who helped us secure a building and has been with us throughout this journey.
