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.
“Music is the universal language. The shrinkage globe dictates the need for establishing relationships with every world culture. Cross-civilization communication continues to be at the forefront of our very existence. Music aids to dispelling prejudices that jeopardize the harmony of human kind.” – Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser
