Providing free music instruction to Chicago's underserved youth
Chicago is home to struggling public schools, divisive racial tension, and some of the country's worst crime and violence statistics. In spite of these limitations, Chicago Arts and Music Project serves to create a community of inclusion, creativity, and excellence for Garfield Park's at-risk youth.
Chicago Arts and Music Project is thrilled to be partnering with Breakthrough Ministries at their FamilyPlex starting this fall! Breakthrough Ministries is community organization located in East Garfield Park that specializes in youth development, homeless intervention, and neighborhood transformation. Chicago Arts and Music Project will rehearses 6 days every week at their community center, offering free orchestral instruction and private lessons.
