Music In Schools Tour

Over the past 10 years we have helped raise over $25,000.00 for music programs in over 25 states across the country. I'm sure the first question you are asking is “How much will this cost my school?” The answer:  

THIS WILL COST YOUR SCHOOL NOTHING

How does it work???

We come to your school and give FREE CLINICS, WORKSHOPS, and ASSEMBLIES that are designed specifically to your needs. Your students have an opportunity to work 1-on-1 with professionals in the entertainment industry.

Your school takes 25% of the proceeds from ticket sales from the concert put on at night by your students and our professionals for the community. 

We focus on vocal and instrumental music, acting, improv, team building, and cultivate students' enthusiasm for performing arts while encouraging them to stay involved with the performing arts during school and throughout life.  

Lessons can be designed to cover any of the 9 National Music Education Standards of your choosing. (NA-M.K-12.1 – NA-M.K-12.9)

Our team will facilitate the process to ensure that this event is a successful one for everyone involved. and we would be more than willing to send you more testimonials from teachers, administrators and students who benefited from these tours.
