“ProMusica is transforming the lives of our students by opening their eyes to what is possible when they match their future aspirations with a lot of hard work.” – Andrew Boy, Founder and CEO of the United Schools Network


musicians in the schools

ProMusica musicians, music director and guest artists visit area schools to work directly with students in the classroom. Offered at no cost to each participating school, Musicians in the Schools provides opportunities for mentoring and relationship-building between students and their professional counterparts over the course of an entire school year. The program is designed to enhance your in-school music curriculum to help further develop students’ appreciation for classical music.

In collaboration with four Columbus charter schools (United Schools Network ­­– Main and Dana Campus), The Graham Family of Schools, and KiPP Columbus, PUF was founded in Fall 2015 to provide quality music and violin instruction and instruments to 100 middle school students from underserved communities at no cost to the students or their families. Lessons are fully integrated in the classroom during the school day with each school receiving two visits a week from ProMusica’s dedicated PUF music instructor.

The ProMusica Student Advisory Board (SAB) offers high school students the opportunity to deeper engage with the orchestra and arts. Through formal internships and volunteer work, select students benefit through an introduction to the professional workplace and gain experience developing and operating their own initiatives in a supportive environment.
