Looking Back: Celebrating the 2020/2021 School Year

We made it through another school year! 

Despite all of the challenges of this past year, our teachers have remained committed to our mission: to bring high-quality music education to students no matter their backgrounds or circumstances.

And wow, did they create some amazing musical memories!

From virtual performances, to features in USA Today, our teachers and students have been keeping music alive! 

We want to take a moment to thank all of our wonderful students and teachers for their amazing work! Take a look at some of our very favorite moments below.

We hope you keep creating all summer long!
