This project is partially supported by the following:
A CityArts Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events.
West Point School of Music is thankful for its fantastic supporters.
West Point School of Music provides musical instruction to disadvantaged youth in some of Chicago’s toughest south and west side neighborhoods. We offer these youth a life-changing alternative to the violence and despair they witness daily in the form of gangs, crime, and drugs. Through music, our students can dream of a brighter future and have hope for a better tomorrow.
“Arts education aids students in the skills needed in the workplace: flexibility, the ability to solve problems and communicate, the ability to learn new skills, to be creative and innovative, and to strive for excellence.” – Joseph M. Calahan
