About My Voice Music

My Voice Music (MVM) teaches youth ages 5-17 to write, record, and release original songs. Why? Because the act of setting an idea down on paper, rehearsing it, collaborating with others, getting feedback on it, and finally releasing it through recordings and/or performance is transformative. It empowers people and changes lives. It’s that simple. Our vision is that all youth have the opportunity to find and share their artistic voice.

MVM was born in a mental health treatment center to help youth facing crisis to cope, heal, and thrive through music, and our artistic mission is tightly enmeshed with a social mission. Each year MVM reaches about 1,500 youth through music programs that take place on-site at partner agencies, and at MVM Studios, our recording studio and performance space in SE Portland where music programs are open to the public.

“This is music made by kids but is not kid music…
This is potent, passionate, and personal…
…this is raw and real and happening right now in our own backyard…
This is My Voice Music.”
