About Us

Our Story

ALTO’s model is based on the Davis High School Strings Tutoring Program, founded in fall of 2019 and based in Davis, CA. The program was developed by violist Kai Keltner and his orchestra director, Angelo Moreno, with the mission of motivating Elementary and Junior High School students to enjoy playing and practicing their instrument. High school tutors from the Davis High School Orchestras run lessons in the same fashion as private music teachers, charging $15 per hour, with scholarships available for low income families. The versatility of the model inspired the creation of ALTO with a goal of building and connecting music tutoring programs nationwide.
