Mission Statement

We believe that every child deserves access to quality music education! Music inspires children; it makes them stronger students; it fosters expression, self-confidence, creativity, and engagement. Music is a key part of a well-rounded education and a joyful childhood. For 26 years, Opus 118 has been dedicated to making quality music education affordable and available to the children of East Harlem.

Description

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

Schools while actively training the next generation of teachers for Opus 118.
