what we do
Our mission is to provide free or low-cost music and arts instruction for Nassau County children who have little or no access to them. We are a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt charitable organization and all donations are tax deductible. We fulfill our mission by working with the school district to offer a wide variety of classes in an after school setting in the elementary schools as well as providing other arts experiences.
We provide after-school classes in art, music, movement, and theatre for students in the Nassau elementary schools. There is no cost to the families, unless an instrument rental is required. We have added new programs that are available to local students, even in surrounding counties: The First Coast Singers and the Nassau Youth Orchestra. In 2019-2020, we contracted with the Nassau County School Board to house Artists in Residence at three of the local elementary schools.
