is creating community through music and education.




per month


Artichoke Community Music is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization created to build community through the teaching, sharing and performing of "everyday music for everyone." Over the past 40 years, Artichoke Community Music has grown from a small retail shop into a beloved community-building music center.

Through the Artichoke Music School, aspiring musicians of all ages and abilities come together to learn and share their love of music. The Artichoke Cafe is the northwest’s premier “listening room” where people of all musical skill levels can share music and learn from one another. The Cafe is a beautiful performance venue for local and traveling musicians. The Artichoke Music Store offers quality musical instruments and related merchandise.
And Artichoke reaches out into the community to provide music instruction and to help disadvantaged kids to purchase the instruments that could change their lives.

Artichoke Community Music is facing several significant challenges! We need to find a new location and to raise the funds needed for a move. So we are launching the most ambitious fund-raising campaign in our history:
Changing Keys: New Space, Same Heart
We invite you to become involved. Please become a monthly donor by signing up for our Patreon campaign.
Thank you!

$600.48 of $1,000 per month
In 2017, Artichoke Community Music moved to a new location. In order to raise enough money, Artichoke financed $50,000 of the move and construction costs. Our monthly payment on the construction loan through 2022 is $975 per month.  
Our goal is to raise enough money through our patrons to make this payment.  Donor support assures that the loan payments do not sacrifice the funds available for our music programs.
