Transforming lives through music.
We are an after-school strings program that provides high-quality music education and academic tutoring for underserved students in Dallas, Texas.
Students receive high-level violin lessons daily after school. We pride ourselves on providing top quality instruction, empowering students to play at an exceptional level.
Students in the program receive daily academic tutoring from community volunteers. Volunteers are vital to students' success and overall well-being.
We believe that hard work deserves big rewards. Our field trips are both educational and fun, providing students with unforgettable experiences.
concerts and events
Our students perform at a very high level. We host two community concerts each year, plus performances around DFW. We have performed at SMU, Dallas Porch Fest, and the Mayor's Back to School Fair, to name a few.
As part of our commitment to high-quality music instruction, we are joined by some of the best professional musicians from around DFW. Visiting Artists lead our students in sectionals, workshops, and small group lessons.
