Why so expensive?


We get it. Expenses can pile up quickly. Funds are limited. Why do we price our clothing the way that we do? For the kids.

The MusicianShip is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides music lessons, experiences, and opportunities for the youth that need our love and support the most. This year alone, we will serve 600 students in the greater Washington, D.C. area, providing a variety of after-school and summer programs. Our multi-disciplinary programs include marching band, choir, and courses in music business/music media.

We provide all of these in-school programs free of charge to students and their families. 100% of your purchase is an investment in The MusicianShip's mission to provide meaningful music experiences for our students. 

  1. Every T-shirt you purchase provides 20 minutes of music instruction for a group of 10 students.
  2. Every Sweatshirt you purchase provides 30 minutes of music instruction for a group of 10 students.
  3. Every 10 shirts we sell puts a child through our entire six-week summer program.

Many of our students come from underserved communities with drop-out rates as high as 50%. Due to the challenges that they face, we explore the power of music and leverage it in impactful ways – focusing on pathways to secondary education and employment.  

A contribution to The MusicianShip is a contribution in support of fueling the dreams and goals of the future generation.
