Virtual learning and performance

From masterclasses taught by industry professionals to virtual fundraisers and showcases, we've been hard at work

Facility Upgrades

At the beginning of the pandemic, our facility was sitting empty. Although we were devastated that we couldn't engage with our students in-person, the empty center provided us with an opportunity for some much needed renovations.

Community Service

Since the first stay-at-home order went into effect, we have been providing support to the community by serving free meals multiple times per week. In addition, we have supported the local vaccination effort by collaborating with other non-profits in the area to host vaccine drives.

 

Virtual Learning

The online environment made it easier than ever to share our art with the world and to learn from experienced professionals in the industry. We produced our first-ever virtual fundraising event, offered numerous online performance opportunities for our students and hosted more than 15 online masterclasses with renowned artists including John Mayer, Wynton Marsalis & Kamasi Washington.
