We envision a world in which all students - regardless of income, background, or zip code - have equal access to opportunities to make music and the resources needed to thrive in college and beyond.

Our mission

Growth: To promote the healthy growth and development of children through the study, practice, and performance of music.

Community: To build healthier communities by investing in the positive development of children through music.

Connection: To develop children as musical ambassadors of peace, hope and understanding amongst people of diverse cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs.

We know music education works.

Our program was developed using cutting-edge arts education research to maximize the positive, long-term effects of music engagement, including increased focusacademic success, and cognitive ability. More than 17 years of research confirms that children who engage in music learn to think creatively and critically. As a result, they perform better in school, and are more likely to attend college and attain success in adulthood.
