2019 – 2020 Registration Information

The People’s Music School (TPMS) has provided tuition-free, after-school instruction to thousands of Chicagoland children over the last 42 years. Last year, over 850 students had access to the benefits of music education through our program.  This year, we’ll be adding 150 more. With opportunities including performances for President & Mrs. Obama, a 100% graduation rate with students headed to college on full scholarships, and collaborations with Grammy-winning musicians, there’s a lot to be excited about!

We’re growing! Are you ready to join us?
