Our vision is to reach as many young children as possible with opportunities to pursue music excellence...
MUSIC REACHING KIDS
Since 1994, SFYSA’s programs have been sustained by the generosity of a community of supporters who understand the impact of music education and the critical nature of our work. As we tackle our mission of expanding the Elementary Strings program into a greater number of area schools and reaching more children - including many of whom are underserved - we continue to rely on the encouragement and support of our incredible, music-loving community. We know you care about our kids.
All of our programs are offered with sliding scale tuition and financial assistance, increasing access for all of our families and kids.
COMMITMENT TO CARING
New Mexico has the highest rate of childhood poverty in the nation, according to the U.S. Census. Many of our kids show up to after school programs hungry. This year SFYSA is adding a nutritious after school snack to Elementary Strings classes so that our students’ basic needs are met and they are ready to learn. Learning to play an instrument, a caring teacher paying attention, and belonging to a group have been shown to increase student success and graduation rates.
Your investment in SFYSA is critical to providing youth in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico with astounding opportunities to learn to play musical instruments, prepare and enjoy amazing performances, and create new reference points for quality and success.
