Our Mission: To ignite positive change around the world through music and education.

Key to Change is a Washington State 501c3 nonprofit organization that ignites positive change around the world through music and education. Founded and directed by violinist, educator, and entrepreneur Dr. Quinton Morris, Key to Change strives to dispel the “starving artist” mentality and provide young artists with the educational tools and resources they need in order to grow and thrive as musicians and as individuals.

Key to Change recently launched a violin studio, of the same name, in South King County which serves middle and high school students of color and economically disadvantaged backgrounds in Renton, Kent, Auburn, Maple Valley, and Federal Way neighborhoods. Quinton Morris opened the studio after returning from his 25-city BREAKTHROUGH World Tour, which paired chamber music recitals with educational outreach and community service in under-resourced communities around the globe.

The Key to Change studio offers scholarships for students requiring financial assistance. Click here to sign up for lessons!
