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 intrinsic, and and in every individual; it is connected to the human spirit and creative mind. We cannot duplicate it through any other form of expression, we cannot quantify it. It exists for its own sake.” – Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser
