Thank you for your support of Blue Bear School of Music. Since 1971 Blue Bear School of Music has been teaching people to play the music they love. Founded by 4 hep cats in a rock 'n' roll band called Wolfgang & Strauss in old school SF, the band never "made it" but the school did! Today Blue Bear is listed as a SF Legacy Business and we continue to offer music education programs to all. We believe that everyone deserves to play music - no matter what age, skill level, or economic background. 

Blue Bear School of Music is a non profit 501(c)(3) that has been helping to fill the gaps where music education programs have been cut  - in public & private schools, community centers and even Little Bears programing in family shelters. We are proud to call Glide Memorial Church, Bayview YMCA, The Mix at the SF Main Library, and St. Joseph's Family Shelter as our core our partners. Thanks to supporters like you we've been able to continue to engage the music community. Music has the power to change lives and that's why we are on Patreon.

How does Patreon work?

Patreon is an awesome platform that will make it easier for us to keep Blue Bear School afloat and thriving through the direct involvement of our community (that’s you!). Through our membership program on Patreon, we’ll be able to offer really cool benefits in exchange for your pledge, like extended concert recordings and music lessons, tickets to events, your name listed on our website and publications, and a look into new and upcoming projects at Blue Bear.

By becoming a Patron, you’re directly impacting the lives of our students, and making sure that music education stays alive (and affordable) in San Francisco for decades to come. We’ll be using the money raised on Patreon to fund music in community centers and homeless shelters, music lessons for underserved students, summer camps, and SO much more!

You can pledge at any tier level you chose, and can edit or change your benefit level at any point. Check out all the benefits listed to the right and thank you for joining our inner circle!

Idols change lives! At $150 you will be singularly responsible for helping one child complete a 12 lesson music program. We will update you on their progress and maybe, just maybe, if you sustain this level of Patreonage for a year they'll write you a song!
