Music in Schools Today is a non-profit organization that supports and develops music education programs that increase student achievement.
To do this, we work with professional Teaching Artists to develop curriculum and provide low-cost music and arts education to PreK-12 schools at no cost to students and their families. Through collaboration with schools, local artists, education specialists, we work locally to ensure a future where every child is curious and engaged in learning through the power of music.
Music in Schools Today works in three areas: arts enrichment, arts integration, and instrument donations. Our arts enrichment and integration programs reflect national and state arts and education standards and integrate standards for developing social and emotional intelligence in students. Classes are developed and taught by trained Teaching Artists. These in-school and afterschool programs include music, band, dance, and visual arts classes.
MUST’s instrument donation program has placed over $1 million worth of gently used instruments into the hands of students across the Bay Area. We accept instruments at three Bay Area locations year-round and during our annual instrument drive.
