Our Impact

While run independently of each other, all of our tutoring programs are committed to deeply impacting the local schools and communities they serve.  Our programs are working to help reinvigorate discouraged school and community music programs to work towards building a better, post-pandemic future for music. Our dedicated high school student leaders (Program Coordinators), music directors, school administrators, community organization leaders, and the ALTO Team are all committed to building tutoring programs that serve everyone in each local community - high school musicians, younger students, music teachers, school/community music programs - and ensuring that each program will continue to grow and better serve its community for many years to come.
