Our mission is to provide a comfortable, educational and social environment in which our members can enjoy, learn, and practice the joy of music together.


  1. We believe that music is important but acceptance, respect, socialization, self-esteem, and building confidence are equally as important.
  2. We have developed programs built around the joy of music with a focus on personal progress and musical growth.
  3. We celebrate diversity and accept members with different types of developmental and physical disabilities.
  4. We provide group classes that emphasize re-creation and re-interpretation of existing music, improvisation, self-expression, and original song composition.
  5. We have created a community where music is the instrument that creates a place where our members feel accepted, respected and comfortable, and have the opportunity to flourish.
  6. We are committed to creating connections through music between the DMF community and the general public.
