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.
Learning in the arts nurtures motivation, including active engagement, disciplined and sustained attention, persistence and risk taking. It also increases attendance and educational aspirations.
