in Athens, GA
Everyone is important.
We believe that each student contributes in their own unique, vital way, and that every contribution is worthwhile.
Progress over perfection.
We believe that the process of taking incremental steps toward success is just as important as success itself.
It’s about more than music.
We believe that music helps students learn to direct their actions toward specific goals, understand themselves and their emotions, and work with others as a team--valuable life skills that students will take wherever they go.
Learning requires relationships.
We believe that students need to feel seen, heard, and understood in order to reach their highest potential. We emphasize working in small-group and one-on-one settings, allowing students to build strong relationships with our teachers and their peers.
Our mission is to make the virtues of music education accessible to all communities in Athens-Clarke County, and to increase students’ chances for success in life through high quality musical instruction. In doing so, we will foster a positive, productive sense of togetherness among the people in our community through artistic collaboration.
There is no limit on the positive effect this project can have on the kids. It can change their lives completely, and the ripple effect in other areas of their lives, and on the whole community, is endless.
