Clear Lake Music Lessons Inc. in partnership with the Michael Kobus Foundation is the only music studio in Houston that is able to offer scholarships to students with financial difficulties.

Qualifying students are provided lessons free of charge for three months. Loaner instruments may be available upon request. Students enrolled in the scholarship program are guided to greater consistencies of practice, motivation, and learning. Students are routinely monitored for practice & development and are required to maintain a high degree of work to stay in the scholarship program.

The Michael Kobus Foundation is a non-profit organization providing scholarships in honor of Michael Kobus to continue his desire to help others. He was a concert promoter and a staple in the Texas live music scene. Michael’s business life made his name synonymous with professional integrity in quality performances. This drive and motivation inspired us to share the gift of music through music scholarships with those who wouldn’t otherwise have access.

Michael Kobus


Michael was an amazing son, brother, and doting uncle. He was an absolute optimist working toward a more enriched life for others and himself by reaching dreams set forth. He loved music in every facet and his spirit shines in his kind hearted generosity setting in motion The Michael Kobus Foundaton.

Michael’s love for music enabled his ability to play instruments, write songs, along with supporting many artists throughout his life. Michael believed music is one of the most important aspects in the fabric of society. Therefore, the Michael Kobus foundation looks to carry on his passion for music and helping others by offering a hand in keeping music education alive. With the fulfillment of this vision we hope to build communities and create special relationships with those who are eager to bring the love of music toward others. Michael believed in people, always wanting to have a beneficial impact on anyone he encountered by encouraging positive changes in their lives in any way he possibly could. This mentality will be carried on in the foundation set up in memory of our beloved Michael Kobus.
