Why Offer the Spotlight Project?
Because more than 5 million students in American public schools do not have access to music education. Music and the arts are vital to every child’s education. The Spotlight Project offers kids the education and the resources that validate the importance of music in their lives. We grant this opportunity to those students who otherwise would have no program for individual music training and the many benefits gained from the experience.
