  • Configuring and supplying new music classrooms
  • Recruiting and hiring top notch music teachers
  • Offering a sequential curriculum meeting state and national standards
  • Mentoring and professional development for teaching professionals

“It’s been such a blessing in our home, not just for my child, but for all the children. You can see the difference from when they first started.”

Sylvia Penalo

“We have had a dramatic impact on the attendance rate. Children are anxious to come to school, predominantly on the music program days.”

Catherine Helfrich

Principal at P.S. 68, Bronx, NY

“There’s a level of creativity that they don’t usually get to tap into in the regular classroom. When they get music, you often see a side of students that you wouldn’t normally see.”
