Detroit MYS is proud to be a non-profit and parent-run organization.  This commitment by our parent and business community helps to keep tuition an accessible choice to enhance the musical talents of student musicians in an ensemble setting.

Our students receive outstanding musical instruction by dedicated professionals and enjoy the opportunity to work alongside others who share their dedication and passion.

All contributions to Detroit MYS are 100% tax deductible contributions which keep DMYS solidly progressing forward in musical distinction and excellence.

The DMYS Board is committed to keeping the promise of responsible and thoughtful expenditures.  Personal, small business and corporate support is vital to keeping our organization in a healthy and competitive position. Tuition is only the starting point to maintaining this vibrant organization. Support through personal and business gifts allows us the ability to:

  • Rent excellent performance venues
  • Rent a suitable rehearsal venue
  • Retain and pay our exceptional conductors
  • Increase promotion ad recruitment efforts to sustain and grow DMYS
  • Fund the annual conductor awards and supplement the senior award
