Our program works by establishing centers in public schools, churrches and community centers in high risk areas providing our classes to children and young people who otherwise would not have access to music instruction. We decided to create these centers in these areas to give them the opportunity to be close to their homes. We also seek to reduce extra transportation costs and present ourselves as an option for parents who work full time.
