We're transforming lives through tuition-free music education.

It’s almost that time of year again! 

See how you can support our students as TPMS heads back to school this year. 

We're not just teaching music.

We are teaching young minds how to think, how to problem solve, how to collaborate through music. We set high expectations for all students. We deliver a rigorous curriculum that demands musical and behavioral excellence. We root all of this in a strong culture of support. 

One of the only music schools of its kind.

The People’s Music School is the rare completely free music school serving Chicago metropolitan area children. We are not only inspiring young minds to experience the joy of music. We are transforming lives!
