When schools transitioned to online learning during COVID-19 and students around the world craved more social interaction, access to personalized help became more inequitable than ever. Student orchestras around the country were particularly hard hit, with most programs cancelling their seasons.
We believe in the transformative power and critical importance of music education. Every child should have the opportunity to learn an instrument regardless of socioeconomic status, or racial or ethnic background.
When young people participate in instrumental music, they are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and they have better school attendance, higher confidence, and stronger writing skills. Learning an instrument teaches discipline, focus, emotional expression, and collaboration. Studies have shown that as little as one hour per week of structured musical practice is enough to see a change in the brain.
Our goal is to reach music students across the world connecting volunteers and learners with safe, equitable opportunities to learn, teach, and grow.
