Our Mission


The Mother Falcon Music Lab (MFML) is a multimedia education program which highlights creativity as a means of self discovery, innovation, annd community connection.

“Ever since attending camp, I have enjoyed getting to meet many musicians who come from different skill-sets and getting to hear their individual talents come together. It has been an honor to play alongside many kids and form those new friendships and see them flourish once getting on stage to showcase our hard work. I’m very grateful for the scholarship opportunity for allowing me to experience MFML. It’s through MFML that my passion to pursue music, my ability to expand friendships, and overall see my musicianship grow."

Our Story


Now in its ninth year, the Mother Falcon Music Lab has nurtured a community that empowers curious creatives to explore, gain confidence, and learn from one another. Born out of award winning band Mother Falcon’s desire to share their rich collaborative experience writing music together, the centering of creative play at any skill level has translated across an array of artistic mediums now included in the program.

MFML employs over 20 working artists each year for their annual summer camp, and partners with diverse local organizations to provide interactive workshops and professional development training throughout the year.
