Our primary commitment is to make music appreciation accessible and affordable for all students, and to communicate that promise to school districts within the US. We work within schools to distribute music appreciation and we deliver online music lessons to students. Our commitment extends effort to secure scholarships and grants from organizations interested in supporting future generations of musicians.
Many cities struggle with extremely high school drop out rates. Research tells us that music and sports high school programs can motivate at-risk students to stay in school. We are looking for low cost membership scholarships of $29.95/month or private on-line lesson scholarships that we can give to at-risk students that would like to take music through our system. Please contact us if you would like to help!
