Our Mission

The American League of Tutoring Organizations (ALTO) is an international, youth-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing accessible and quality music education to young students around the world. We aim to fulfill this by providing high school musicians and their music directors with the necessary resources, consulting, grants, and global network to start and manage student-led music tutoring programs in their school or community.


Each music tutoring program offers free or reduced rate private lessons taught by high school tutors to elementary and middle school students in the surrounding area. Each program is run by local high school musicians and is meant to foster long term musical unity and growth within the school district or community it serves. 

To further enrich our tutors and students' musical growth, ALTO works with programs to facilitate in person events such as workshops and performance opportunities.  In addition, programs and their tutors & students enjoy a wide array of benefits from ALTO including participation in the musical products grants program (free & discounted products from our sponsors), PVSA service hour certifications, and participation in services from our nonprofit partners.
