AfterSchool 01

Our After School Music Enrichment Program replaces band classes eliminated by public schools.  

The After School Music Enrichment Program provides students in grades 3-5 with a 9-month musical education session at participating public schools with no tuition charges for students.  The curriculum focuses primarily on learning to read musical notes and play selected instruments, and classes meet twice a week.

There are currently two sessions per school year and each concludes with a public performance by the students to showcase their newly acquired musical skills. We’re proud of our current directors including Rodney Allen Sr., Forest Hopkins, Alonzo Taylor, and Rodney Allen Jr.

Our initial programs began in 2015 at West Manor Elementary School and DeKalb Alternative School.  We have since expanded into other parts of metro Atlanta and more than 100 kids take part in our programs!

Our 2017 list of schools includes Perkerson Elementary, Heritage Academy, Beecher Hills Elementary, Peyton Forest Elementary, Bolton Academy, and more coming soon.
