About Music For All Kids

Music For All Kids (MFAK) is a registered 501c3 nonprofit devoted to the advancement of youth through the learning, application and instruction of music, regardless of a student’s financial status. We offer a self-sustaining system of education and enrichment using musical interest and abilities to foster healthy youth development.

MFAK provides instruction, instruments, workshops, and much more. While our initial focus was at-risk and low-income youth, today we offer opportunities to a variety of underserved youth in our home community of Marquette, Michigan. MFAK collaborates with local school districts and other nonprofit community organizations to serve those in need.

Currently we offer instruction and enrichment opportunities to students of the Marquette Alternative High School as well as to the youth of the Lake Superior Village Youth and Family Community Center. Private individual instruction is also available, free of charge to those who qualify, thanks to The Howard Ylinin Scholarship Fund.

Our talented Director and instructor, Nicklas Johnson, is an accomplished and seasoned professional musician, having formed, managed and fronted the popular local band, The Daydreamers, for many years. Nick has an extensive background not only in music instruction on a variety of instruments but in the business of music marketing, booking, promotion and recording as well.

Music For All Kids is community minded, funded and supported. While we receive regular grant funding from several local foundations and service organizations, much of our support comes from directly from people like you through your generous donations. In addition to your generous financial support, MFAK is also in need of music instrument donations for use by our students. If you have unused instruments you would like to see put to great use by local students, please give Nick a call at (906) 235-0995
