Ways to Help

Your help can make a transformative difference in the life of a child.

With severe cuts to arts education programs in the schools, thousands of children are being denied access to musical education. The People's Music School exists solely to fill this gap. We rely upon the generosity of individuals, foundations and businesses who understand that music changes lives; empowering the children, families and communities in which they live.
