Positively impacting youth through music.
is committed to creating opportunities for youth to receive affordable and quality music lessons. Our urban youth orchestra is located in East St. Louis and open to students age 3-18.
Music enhances the education of our children by helping them to make connections and broadening the depth with which they think and feel. If we are to hope for a society of culturally literate people, music must be a vital part of our children's education.
