We are seeking a group of diverse and dynamic volunteers for our growing organization who are passionate about our mission of providing access to quality music education to the students of East Harlem, New York.
Opus 118 Harlem School of Music ( www.Opus118.org ) provides high-quality music instruction in an environment that nurtures excellence and creativity. Students in the East Harlem community are served with tuition-free twice-weekly group violin instruction during regular school hours and subsidized private instruction for violin, viola, cello, guitar, and piano after school hours.
This organization was founded by the now-legendary Roberta Guaspari, whose fight for in-school music programs in East Harlem became the subject of a documentary ( Small Wonders) and a feature film (Music from the Heart). Roberta continues to work in East Harlem
