Taking STEPS to help children in our community

Classical Music Education in FloridaServing hundreds of at-risk children in this unique after-school program, Music STEPS provides music lessons, instruments and performance opportunity to kids who could not otherwise have access to music education. The program is offered at Title I schools, community centers and social service facilities.

The goals of this project are to:

  • Develop skill in playing an instrument, reading music and ensemble performance;
  • Increase academic success – a proven result of music study;
  • Enhance self-esteem through achievement and personal accomplishment;
  • Improve behavioral skills such as cooperation, commitment, concentration and flexibility, and
  • Present positive role models who serve as nurturing mentors.

"Music STEPS has transformed the lives of 1,500 underserved students in an after-school initiative that gives each child a unique opportunity to learn a musical instrument free of charge.  Thanks to this program, many of our students have gone on to enter performing arts middle and high schools."
   Michael Spring, Director, Miami-Dade Cultural Affairs Division

"The programs and activities of FYO are of the highest caliber-providing the finest in music education, outreach and cultural enrichment.  Hundreds of children of diverse ethnic, religious, national and socioeconomic backgrounds have benefited from their STEPS program, which provides excellence in orchestral music training and education."
   Mary Becht, Director, Broward County Cultural Division
