The FOCUS program provides early access to musical training, exposing students to different types of music and instruments. The FOCUS program’s mission is to generate enthusiasm for music, and to be a link between students and Boston-area music schools, enabling those who are interested to pursue musical study.
Kindergarten students from historically underrepresented communities in classical music (Black or Latinx) that are in Kindergarten/K2 in public, private, parochial, charter, or home schools in Boston and surrounding areas, can apply for admission to FOCUS.
Classes for the FOCUS Program typically begin at the end of January. Applications for FOCUS 2021 will be available soon; if you’d like to be notified of when FOCUS applications are available, please fill out this form. Questions? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project STEP offers FOCUS at no cost to the participants, however, there is a $35 registration fee for each attending session (FOCUS I and II). Project STEP will provide all instruments and learning materials used in class for the students.
