MusicianCorps is a program of Center for Music National Service (MNS), a nonprofit organization based in San Francisco that promotes music for public benefit and social impact. MusicianCorps trains and places musicians as teachers, mentors and care workers in public schools, children's and veterans hospitals and other settings where music can reach, teach and heal. MusicianCorps also promotes the role of music in society through advocacy and policy development.
In 2009-2010 the organization designed and managed a "Music National Service" pilot program in five cities, employing skilled musicians to serve full-time in return for a modest stipend, health benefits and training. Learn more about our social impact and movement building below.
