Since 2016, ArtSmart has been partnering with under-resourced middle and high schools to provide mentorship through music to talented youth.

How we work with schools

The ArtSmart music mentorship program provides students with free one-to-one voice lessons from professional musicians during the school day.  ArtSmart appoints a school staff member to be the dedicated on-site ambassador at every partner school ensuring an easy and seamless process. This staff member connects with the ArtSmart team to oversee lesson scheduling, master classes, field trips, performances and school related last minute changes. 

“A substantial increase in arts educational experiences has remarkable impacts on students’ academic, social, and emotional outcomes.”

Brookings Institution, February 2019

The benefits of ArtSmart

Our mentorship program provides the stability and support that every young person needs to succeed, in a safe learning environment.  Using an evidenced based curriculum, our mentors work with their students to set goals, learn music, develop a health self-esteem and ultimately, chart a successful course for the rest of their lives.
