Mission Statement

Bringing the joy of music to life every day.

Organization History

Founded in 1979, Swallow Hill Music began as an outgrowth of the Denver Folklore Center, a music store in Denver's Swallow Hill neighborhood that offered music lessons and performances to the community in the 1960s and 1970s. When the Folklore Center closed temporarily in the late 1970s, a group of committed volunteers formed SHM as a nonprofit organization. From these humble beginnings, we have grown to become a cultural asset and distinct thread in Colorado's musical fabric.


"Thank you for fulfilling such a huge need. Since school budgets have prevented exposure in class, Swallow Hill Music's mission has never been more critical. Thank you for all that you do in making the community a better place!" Principal

Tax Credits

Support Little Swallows Outreach Programs
Leverage Your Investment w/ the Colorado Child Care Tax Credit

Colorado is offering a 50% income tax credit to taxpayers who donate to qualifying programs - Swallow Hill's Little Swallows early childhood music education program is one of those programs! The effect of this credit is that half of your donation is offset by dollar-for-dollar reduction of your Colorado income taxes.

Your gift to Swallow Hill's Little Swallows program helps those whose early lives have been marked by poverty. Taxpayers who make a monetary contribution to a qualifying program in Colorado that promotes child care may claim an income tax credit of 50% of the total contribution, in addition to standard charitable deductions.
