For Kids

Students in the Sounds Minds program test at math proficiency (grade level or higher) at four times the rate of their peers not in the program.


For Families

From musical story time at the library to a traveling instrument petting zoo, we love seeing you around town.


For Adults

Newsflash: music education isn’t as prominent in school as it used to be. So we do a lot to fill in those gaps for those new to the art form or who are always wanting more.
