About My Voice Music:

My Voice Music engages underserved youth in music and performance to promote social and emotional development. Our programs empower students to use music to cope, heal and thrive. Through partnerships with local alternative schools and other nonprofit agencies, we provide free music programs in areas where needs are high but funding for services is low. All of our programs are provided for free, or at a “pay what you can afford” rate, to youth and their families.
