10 years of providing life-changing music programs to under resourced youth giving them confidence, discipline and relationship building skills that improve their future success and economic mobility, preserving Asbury Park’s rich musical legacy, bringing the community together for free, live music and supporting musicians with opportunities to perform in our city by the sea.

Do you know what APMF does in the community?

We thought we’d throw back to life before the pandemic and show you… see if you recognize some local faces!

Thank you Glen Burtnik for sharing your great song “Where Music Lives” about our city by the sea we all love and includes a chorus of kids
from Asbury Park High School
“I want to live this life with true emotion
Someplace where the music plays 
I want to spend my days down by the ocean
Where music lives & children play”
