Bridging the Accessibility Gap in Music Education

Students in Chicago schools don’t have equal access to music education.
Our goal is to bridge that gap.

K-12 tuition-free instrumental music programs

On-site programming at Chicago schools

Success in school through strong social support

Lifelong love for music and the arts



Our Story

We believe all students deserve to make music, regardless of background. That’s why we cultivate music and mentorship programming in Chicago’s underserved communities. Each day we witness the power of music to transform a student’s life, and we’re on a mission to make that possible—for everyone.
