Headwaters School of Music & the Arts (Headwaters) has served as a nonprofit 501c3 organization since 1997.  Our mission is to seek music, engage the arts and build community.  We operate on a combination of donor contributions, grant opportunities, and student tuition.  If you find value in arts experiences, please consider a contribution to Headwaters.  Your dollars will be used toward day to day expenses of running the school, student scholarships, and supporting inspirational events that connect the people of Bemidji and its surrounding region.  Any contribution amount helps Headwaters continue to do what it's been doing for nearly 20 years... creating community and providing accessible private and group musical and visual arts experiences.   You can make a lasting legacy by supporting the arts in Bemidji!

Any amount helps us continue to fulfill our mission.  THANK YOU!
