Music in Schools Program

The Music in Schools Program brings music education directly into Chicago public schools. This program is committed to providing core music education to every student. The Music in Schools Program works in underserved schools that do not have the resources to provide music and arts education. Education is provided both during and after school time, depending on the needs of each partner school.

Population(s) Served

The Community Music Program works year-round with community organizations to bring core music education directly into the neighborhoods where students would not otherwise have access to it. This program extends the reach of the Music in Schools Program, bringing music education to even more students across the region. Partnerships include community centers and the Chicago Park District.
