The MusicianShip


The MusicianShip is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization that facilitates music lessons, experiences and opportunities. While our mission is not exclusive to any one particular group, we are focused on at-risk youth as they benefit most from positive outreach and music scholarship preparation. We are vetted and approved by the DC Public Schools as an official After-School service provider, allowing us to deliver free music instruction to students who may not otherwise have such opportunities.

Video 5/9/2019: Keepin The Funk Alive - Funk Parade Preview

Funk Parade 2019 is happening on Saturday May 11th.  Funk Parade is DC's  largest all day celebration of music dance and culture taking place along the historic U Street Corridor. The festival is made up of the mighty Funk Parade itself that winds through the neighborhood and over 30 stages throughout the neighborhood hosting musical performances all day. Funk Parade is a celebration for everyone: all ages, races, cultural backgrounds, sexual identities and walks of life.  Funk Parade is the sub atomic particle of love that makes you want to move and enjoy the company of all humans.  We are excited to partner with the Kennedy Center once again to present an amazing day of music and celebration. Make sure to visit the HFA Stage (Located near Florida Ave and V St NW) on Saturday May 11th from 1:00pm to 7:00pm. To find out more visit
