Led by professionally-trained faculty, students receive tuition-free intensive music education for an average three hours per student per week in our four core areas of music instruction: music theory, group instruction, individual instruction, and performance ensembles.
Young students at The People’s Music School begin their musical journeys with General Music, a program that teaches the foundations of music designed for elementary students grades K – 5.
Music Theory curriculum at The People’s Music School trains students to think critically and apply new tools for creative self-expression.
Private and group lessons offer students the opportunity to refine their skills, nurture their creativity, and demonstrate musical excellence.
Ensembles offer our students the opportunity to collaborate as young musicians, learn from their peers, and perform for live audiences.
SERVICE, LEADERSHIP, ARTISTRY, AND MENTORSHIP (SLAM)
Our SLAM program gives advanced, older students the opportunity to build on their skills of discipline, teamwork, critical thinking and self-assurance and apply them as they face new challenges.
