Explore. Experience. Contribute to the World of Music

Music enriches lives. Music can inspire us, guide us, and provide us with joy. And, sometimes, music can even save a life. MDC is a Kitsap nonprofit organization designed to bring people, especially youth, closer to the joys and benefits of music through singing, playing, writing or just listening. How can we help you?

Our Mission

With its home in Bremerton, WA, The Music Discovery Center (MDC) is a Kitsap County resource designed to create an inclusive space for community members, youth and adults to experience, explore, and contribute to the world of music through education, performance, 
and mentorship.

Fifth Grade Music Infusion

5th grade is the key moment in a child’s life where they can begin to benefit from singing or playing an instrument. MDC offers instruments, music mentoring and teaching support to all 5th graders in Kitsap County whether they are currently involved in music or not.

Catalyst Public School Partnership

In its third year bringing continuous, hands-on introductory music exploration experiences for 2nd – 8th grade students at Bremerton’s Catalyst Public School, this program is aimed to capture the hearts and minds of young people to adopt a creative skill during their formative years.

Make Music Day

Make Music Day happens every year in cities around the world on June 21st and MDC hosts the West Sound’s version, opening up the stage to professional, semi-professional and amateur performers to perform at no cost in Bremerton’s Quincy Square. Come get a taste of the local music flavors our community offers or watch some past performances we’ve got show-cased on our website.

“I started imagining this whole different world. It was a society of musicians, a family I hoped I could belong to one day.”

The Inspiration

Quincy Jones is an American record producer, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer, arranger, and film and television producer. His multi-award-winning career spans over 60 years. A lesser-known truth about this world-renowned icon is that Quincy first discovered music as a Bremerton, Washington youth.
