Organization Overview

The People's Music School is a 44-year old institution that has brought the transformative benefits of music to over 10,000 lives across Chicago and now California. Our model is completely tuition-free. We serve students aged 5-18 who otherwise would not be able to afford music education. Since music education has benefits that extend far beyond the artistic benefits, we view ourselves as an institution building future leaders. We build cognitive, academic, and social-emotional skills through an intense and rigorous curriculum.  Our students learn with us for up to 12 hours per week and their families fulfill a significant service requirement. In the last four years, the school has grown 3x to serve 1000 students each year, maintained quality programs, and benefited from the amazing strength of its community. Our results have recently been showcased in the Chicago Tribune, Billboard Magazine, and more. There’s no place like People’s!
