Welcome to Uncut

UNCUT is a Portland based non profit dedicated to providing resources and knowledge to kids between the ages of 10-17.  We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to incorporate music into their lives. In some cases it’s simply a matter of inspiring and cultivating an existing musician. In others it’s as simple as introducing a new child to music. Our goal is to CONNECT young artists to their community of musicians; to provide ACCESS to the tools they need to succeed; to ENGAGE with those interested in a career in music and to EDUCATE in all aspects of the music business.


Don’t take our word for it. Watch this short video to see why music is so important in the lives of children.
