About Santa Fe Talent Education 501c3

What is Patreon?

Patreon is your gateway to supporting Santa Fe Talent Education. Patreon is a way for individuals, businesses, and foundations to support SFTE, a 501c3 non-profit music education program, dedicated to providing affordable, quality violin instruction and music education to families in Northern New Mexico.

Why Support Santa Fe Talent Education?

It is well documented that music education improves a child’s mind, coordination, confidence, and overall well-being. To provide this to any student no matter their family’s economic background ensures a bright future for us all.

While violin instruction has the appearance of being rarified and pursued by only those with disposable income, the SFTE Suzuki program is open to all by providing an environment where all students can thrive.

SFTE is not only a program for violin instruction, it is also a program that supports families – students and their parents - as they together learn and enjoy the benefits of learning through music.

SFTE's educational programs benefit individuals, families and our community.
